Television Producers provides an in-depth look at the work of individual television producers and network barons. Over two hundred and fifty producers across the range of British television-BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and the independents-were interviewed for this book, as well as the Hollywood executive producers of Dallas, Kojak, MASH, and CHIPS. The final chapter considers the possibilities for the future of broadcasting as it faces the 21st century. Jeremy Turnstalls focus is on the main concerns of the producers job, including money, the type of performers available, organizing a studio, location and film, and the kinds of expectations which each particular field is supposed to fulfill. Television Producers covers a wide range of television genres, and gathers information rarely found in other books in the field.
