SÉRIE TV PRIME TIME
TV-SERIE PRIMETIME
GOAL AND PURPOSE OF THE SLOT
This is the time slot for popular serial formats that attract a potentially large audience. Just under
an hour long (45 – 60 minutes) per episode, they can be broadcast as a double bill in this time
slot in both countries. In exceptional cases, 90 minute-long episodes are possible.
These are multi-part series, preferably television premieres, consisting of four or more episodes.
The stories are conceived with a foreseeable endpoint in mind, and feature large dramatic arcs.
The structure should arouse the viewer’s curiosity regarding the next episode, particularly
through the use of cliff-hangers. Generally speaking, the slot should remain open for different
types of genres. But it is primarily conceived for familiar genres, such as historical dramas, epics
and family sagas.
LENGTH AND TRANSMISSION
Episodes each from 26 to 60 minutes
Prime time
In both countries the dubbed version is normally broadcast.
