Thu Sep 03 15:59:22 GMT 2020

Intellect is pleased to announce that /*Producing Children’s Television in the On Demand Age <>*/, by Anna Potter, is now available in ebook and paperback.

Children’s television is undergoing rapid change. New streaming services like Netflix and YouTube compete for attention with established players like the BBC and Disney. Drawing on extended interviews with leading screen industry figures, Potter examines how creative practices, funding models and production norms in children’s television have adapted to television’s distribution revolution.

This book provides a detailed account of the creative, economic and regulatory processes underlying the production of children’s television in a multi-platform era. Its collection of integrated case studies includes extended interviews with leading producers whose programmes are watched by children all over the world. These case studies reveal the impact of digitization on the funding, distribution and consumption of children’s television, and the ways that producers have adapted their creative practice accordingly. In its comprehensive analysis of the production culture of children’s television, this book provides a valuable lens through which to view broader transformations in media industries in the on-demand age.
