Dramatic programming

Dramatic programming

Dramatic programming is television content that is scripted and (normally) fictional. This excludes, for example, sports, news, reality and game shows, stand-up comedy and variety shows. Also, by convention, the term is not generally usually used for situation comedy or soap opera.

Most dramatic programming for TV falls within other standard categories such as miniseries, made-for-TV movies or certain rather circumscribed dramatic genres.

Some examples of BBC dramatic programming would be the serials The Six Wives of Henry VIII or Our Friends in the North.
