Course Description Why and how does some of the best writing come out of TV, as currently universally acknowledged? The course will take a close look at American TV drama, from the "Golden Age" of the 1950s to the dramatic complexity found in recent Cable series. We will begin with prestigious writers Rod Serling and Paddy Chayefsky, study groundbreaking mini-series like "Roots" and "Holocaust," and explore how shows such as "Hill Street Blues" and "Twin Peaks" laid the groundwork for Cable series including "The Sopranos," "The Wire," "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad."
