The essential reference for anyone working in the television or video industries, This Business of Television is a comprehensive guide to the inner workings of the business. This book examines how television programming is financed, produced and distributed; how FCC regulations and federal law shape the form and content of broadcast, cable and satellite television; and how producers, networks, cable companies, and local stations work together to create or acquire programming. This Business of Television has 50 chapters and includes three useful appendixes: legal documents and forms; concise boilerplate contract forms for the most common business transactions in television; and a list of useful industry contracts and addresses. The legal documents and the ready-to-use contract forms are included on the enclosed disc, so they can be easily accessed for home use.
