Is Scripted Programming In Again?
We couldn't be more delighted. It seems every network has too many "unscripted" programs. It's as if what was a half-hour or hour of fantasy has been replaced with the reality of somebody else's life and/or problems. It's not voyeurism, but sometimes feels just as icky. It seems for a moment in time (and ongoing for some) programmers thought "real people" had to be more interesting (and cost effective) than made up characters. Perhaps, not so much.
One can only hope with the renewed focus on scripted programming AMC will again bring forth a mega hit. It surely has the potential with "Better Call Saul".
