Prime Time Law: Fictional Television As Legal Narrativeby Robert M. Jarvis
Pub. Date: 08/01/1998
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
Serious enough to be discussed in the classroom, entertaining enough to be read in the living room, and useful enough to be kept in the library, Prime Time Law features contributions by eighteen of the country's leading scholars. Collectively, they discuss over 100 shows, including both the famous and the obscure. A Show Index specifics where each show is analyzed.
Besides dramas and comedies, Prime Time Law also looks at how lawyers are portrayed on soap operas, westerns, and science fiction shows. A special feature of the book is its extended treatment of the roles played by women attorneys and African-American attorneys.
