Aspen Ideas Festival - What Do TV Shows Tell Us About Ourselves?

What Do TV Shows Tell Us about Ourselves?

How much can we learn about our society through our TV shows? Can they break social barrier, or even help catalyze social change? Writer/producers of some of television’s most influential programs and characters—James Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda, Taxi, The Simpsons) and Brian Grazer (24, Parenthood, Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights)—consider what relationship onscreen life has to real life.

James L. Brooks, Kurt Andersen
