Seeing It on Television: Televisuality in the Contemporary US ‘High-end’ Series is co-authored by Dominic Lees and Max Sexton. The book is a detailed study of aesthetics in contemporary US television drama. It examines a range of cultural, technological and formal practices that continue to maintain a distinctive dramatic mode in the high-end series, which acknowledges both television’s history, as well as a high degree of variability in its use of recent televisual conventions.
