America in Primetime premieres this Sunday at 10 pm on MSNBC! The special four-part series showcases the expansive world of modern television, with in-depth interviews with the creators, writers and actors who give life to characters we have come to know, love, and live with. Originally airing on PBS in 2011, the series has been updated with compelling new shows that have most recently shaped pop culture and television history. America in Primetime presents an extraordinary opportunity to experience the creative process from the inside out.
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 – capturing both the continuity of the character, and the evolution.
Tune in this Sunday, December 3rd, for the first episode- The Misfit.
