HBO and the Aristocracy of TV Culture : affiliations and legitimatising television culture, post-2007 (Co-Authored with Dr Janet McCabe). This article, which was published in the journal Mise-Au-Point in January 2018, sheds light on what HBO can teach us about the complex interaction between television, culture and commerce and teases out the implications of how the production of contemporary original serial drama and the value placed on aesthetic style and storytelling practices developed at HBO, have been adapted in and through other TV institutional contexts across the globe.
