Politicotainment focuses on how political life is interpreted, negotiated, and represented by television entertainment, in particular by drama series, late night comedy, and reality-based programs. Real political issues are converging in today's television tableau, prompting questions about performance, interactivity, and engagement. The authors in this collection share the notion that entertainment formats are important sources of political culture, and inform political processes. Politicotainment links theories about the relationship between public and private, fact and fiction, and politics and popular culture to the changes taking place in the television industry, journalism, celebrity activism, and political content in entertainment programming.
