(p.129) Chapter 7 American Gothic Television
American Gothic Culture

Julia M. Wright

Edinburgh University Press

Examining works from the full history of American television, this chapter focuses on three aspects of American gothic television: first, the entwined relationship between realism and the gothic in early television; second, the focus of gothic series on probable characters in improbable situations; and, finally, the division of gothic television into conventional dramatic domestic and workplace forms, and their challenge to that dramatic division.
