Summary
"Any follower of Spanish cinema who turns to television finds that the programmes most appreciated by both audiences and critics are as creative and original as any feature film. This book, the first of its kind, gives close readings of television programmes broadcast from the 1970s to the present day currently available on DVD, embracing drama, comedy, and talk/reality shows." "The obsessive theme of television in the work of Almodovar, Spain's most celebrated film director, is also treated, arguing for a re-reading of his work in the light of television studies. In addition to analysing particular programmes, this book examines television channels, production companies, governments, and the role of the press, academy, and audience."--BOOK JACKET
