9780826421302: The HBO Effect

No advertisers to please, no censors to placate, no commercial interruptions every eleven minutes, demanding cliffhangers to draw viewers back after the commercial breaks: Hbo has re-written the rules of television; and the result has been nothing short of a cultural ground shift. The Hbo Effect details how the fingerprints of Hbo are all over contemporary film and television. Their capability to focus on smaller markets made shows like Sex and the City, The Sopranos, The Wire, and even the more recent Game of Thrones and Girls, trigger shows on basic cable networks to follow suit. Hbo pioneered the use of Hdtv and the widescreen format, production and distribution deals leading to market presence, and the promotion of greater diversity on Tv (discussing issues of class and race).
The Hbo Effect examines this rich and unique history for clues to its remarkable impact upon television and popular culture. It's time to take a wide-angle look at Hbo as a producer of American culture.

About the Author:

Dean J. DeFino is Associate Professor of English and Director of Film Studies at Iona College in New Rochelle, New York, USA. His previous publications include Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (forthcoming), and numerous essays on a range of subjects, from The Sopranos to The Maltese Falcon to Trailer Park Boys.

From Booklist:

DeFino, director of film studies at Iona College, looks at the birth, evolution, and impact of cable network HBO. It began small, broadcasting movies, sporting events, and documentaries, and grew over time into a powerhouse. In recent years, it’s produced such pop-cultural phenomena as The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sex and the City, and Girls, not to mention such expensive and significant television events as Band of Brothers and From the Earth to the Moon. DeFino explores the way HBO’s programming has spurred other networks, both cable and broadcast, to modify their own approaches. We probably wouldn’t have Mad Men and The Shield if HBO hadn’t started the ball rolling with its own grittily realistic shows featuring morally compromised characters. This isn’t the first book about HBO’s influence on the rest of television—it follows on the heels of Brett Martin’s Difficult Men (2013)—but it definitely adds to the discussion. DeFino does a fine job of exploring historical, literary, and cinematic precedents to HBO’s groundbreaking programming, drawing connections between the characters in such series as The Sopranos and True Blood to those of Greek mythology and in the works of Shakespeare, Dreiser, and Hemingway, not to mention in films like Taxi Driver and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Scholarly without ever being dry or pedantic, this is a well-presented look at a phenomenon that is still very much being felt in many areas of popular culture. --David Pitt
