TNT is Tweeting the Script for the First Episode of 'Mob City' Ahead of Its Premiere | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Alison Willmore:  '"Mob City," TNT's miniseries from writer-director-executive producer Frank Darabont set in 1940s Los Angeles, premieres this Wednesday, and the network's trying out an unusual experiment to promote the three-week series -- an "adaptweetion" (their word!) in which the script for the first episode will be adapted for and published through Twitter."

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Adrienne LaFrance:  'Donald Trump may be a Wall Street Journal reader, but the Journal is not a brand that immediately evokes the style of Trump’s long-running reality show The Apprentice. And yet the Journal is experimenting with its own interpretation of the genre, having just completed a 20-week first-season run of its Startup of the Year online show — a contest that the Journal calls an “interactive crash-course in entrepreneurship.”'

Quote: "According to Nielson, approximately 5% of American households have abandoned their television sets, using computers, smartphones and tablets to consume TV and video content rather than watching ‘traditional TV’". Second screen increased engagement is becoming very important to those who are in the business of television. It’s now very easy for viewers to filter out traditional TV advertising, so Social TV offers valuable alternative commercial models for broadcasters and content providers" Unquote

TV is still very powerfull. We know that - 2nd screen is rising -  and in the EU we are - mine opinion- miles behind look at zeebox for instance.

Is internet bad for tv? This explains the situation in the US. Does someone knows if it's the same in Europe? My gut feeling tells me that here in the Netherlands TV still has a big chunk of the market. People use tablets and other possibilties as second screen. Futher I have the feeling TV is used as it always is used and at know, this moment in time, watching TV is almost the same as it was a few years ago except for the second screen. Who can tell?

Dorothea Martin's curator insight, May 20, 2013 3:30 AM

Absolute Leseempfehlung! 

Das Phänomen des "Binge-watching"s (Komakucken?!) und "Hyperserien"


“I’ve always said that I don’t see my show as serialized so much as hyperserialized,” explains Vince Gilligan, creator of AMC’s Breaking Bad. “That is something that, honestly, I wouldn’t have been allowed to do 10 or 15 years ago.”

Während Serien wie Sopranos, The Wire oder Deadwood zuerst ihre Charaktere entwickelten und die Handlung erst an zweiter Stelle kam, entwerfen heutige "Hyperserien" Tableaus, die von einer zentralen Frage vorwärts getrieben werden - und noch größeres Suchtpotenzial haben:


"And that’s ultimately the biggest difference between the Hyperserials and the legendary shows that spawned them: a purer, more intense focus on one linear, series-long plotline. Hyperserials tend to do away with recaps, teasers, and exposition of any kind. They make even less sense when viewed out of order"

Rogério Rocha's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:23 AM

IN A certain sense, all television is addictive. This should be pretty obvious, given that Americans watch more than five hours a day, on average. At that rate, a person who lives to the age of 80 will spend 21 percent of his or her adult life—the equivalent of 4,175 days, or nearly 13 years—in front of the tube.

My favorate quote: "When Dickens was writing his novels, and they were serialized once a month, he read all the letters that came in. His novels were actually a real dialogue with his audience. He was writing to entertain them, and he got paid by the word, and he wanted them to be pleased. But he also wanted to make sure that they got the story he was trying to tell."
