Editors: Amir Hetsroni (Ariel University, Israel)
Book Description:
Reality television has become a worldwide phenomenon which has the capability to crossover cultural boundaries and appeal to distinctly different markets. Drawing theories from media studies, economics, cultural studies and social science, this new book reviews how reality TV has conquered the world and has the potential to remove successful dramatic genres from the prime-time lineup.
