America in Primetime
Genre: Arts
"America in Primetime" is a collaboration with the community that creates primetime TV and an unusual opportunity to experience the creative process from the inside out. At the heart of the series are more than 100 in-depth interviews with a virtual "who's who" of the best creators, writers, and actors in primetime, including Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Larry David, Ron Howard, Judd Apatow, Alec Baldwin, James Brooks, Garry Shandling, Alan Alda, Andre Braugher, Steven Bochco, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hugh Laurie, Eva Longoria, Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Christopher Lloyd, Norman Lear, and dozens more. Structured around today's most compelling shows, weaving between past and present, each episode focuses on one character archetype that has remained a staple of primetime through the generations -- the independent woman, the man of the house, the misfit, and the crusader.
