America in Primetime

America in Primetime is structured around the most com­pelling shows on television today, unfolding over four hours and weaving between past and present. Each episode focuses on one character archetype that has remained a staple of primetime through the generations — the Independent Woman, the Man of the House, the Misfit and the Crusader — capturing both the continuity of the character, and the evolution. The finest television today has as its foundation the best television of yesterday.
