BOOK PROMOTION: „QUALITY TV SERIES: MILLENIUM AGE OF THE SCREEN, BY SANJA KOVAČEVIĆ

Moderator: Daniel Rafaelić


Is film a species to face extinction? We find ourselves in times of great changes of media and culture. Television is referred to as „the new film“, a media that dominates both commercially and more importantly, artistically. Sanja Kovačević holds diplomas in dramaturgy and sociology. She worked as the main scriptwriter in the drama series „Good Intentions“ , as a scriptwriter on comedy series and as creative producer. In her book „Quality Tv Series: Millenium Age of the Screen“, she describes how television won artistic and author’s freedoms so far considered inherent only to films in the last 25 years, especially since the beginning of the nineties and the start of Sopranos. „Quality TV series“ presents five contemporary series: Sopranos, Deadwood, The Wire, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Sanja Kovačević suggests that it gets more interesting to view TV series by what they „contain“, rather than by what they“ lack“. If we considered ourselves to know all about television and series, with this book it gets clear that we know
nothing. It is OK you are not into watching the series, now you can
read quality TV literature on the subject. (Dragan Jurak)
