Subject: MediaSince the dawn of television, television formats – the overall concept and branding
for a copyrighted television show – have crossed borders and been retooled and
remade in different countries. In the 1950s and 1960s, it was not uncommon for
television broadcasters and production houses to have employees stationed in
various countries around the world looking for formats, primarily non-fiction, to buy
and redo. Over time, this has only expanded. Non-fiction formats, like XXX Got
Talent, The Voice, are still a popularly genre to buy and redo, but fiction formats, like
the highly popular and redone Israeli format – Prisoners of War which has been
remade in over 20 countries – are also in high demand. Therefore, it is highly certain
that a television format you have watched is based on a television format from
another country! Knowing that television formats do not necessarily die but they are
just remade begs the questions: How are they the same? How are they different?
For this assignment, you will be expected to watch at least the pilot episode of each
show and make reference to those episodes in your paper and your presentation. In your paper, your comparison will explore the elements of the media entertainment
landscape of the two countries.
