A Note on Dramas
A drama is usually a serious work of fiction. The Sopranos and Breaking Bad were dramas. Friends was a sitcom.
The game show is not a drama. A TV movie could be a drama, as commenters have pointed out. A series is not necessarily a drama because other shows are also released as a series.
The Narrative Structure of Network TV Drama
The old network television drama scripts are broken down into five-acts. We will discuss the general structure of most TV drama script when it comes to the narrative structure guidelines and expectations. Let's talk about the format.
There are usually six or so commercial breaks in a network television show. The audience is left on a somewhat of a cliffhanger when the commercial break ends, with the story leaving them on a break between acts. There are no commercial breaks for Premium Cable and Streaming channels.
The format looks more like a feature screenplay aesthetic if you don't identify the breaks within the script. The narrative structure is a strong compass to show you where you need to go to tell a compelling TV drama story. You can work in unique narratives with the five-act structure.
The Stage and the Film: A Different Kind of Drama
Drama is a literary genre that is similar to other forms of literature, but has a distinct characteristic that makes it different. Dramatic works use seven elements of fiction, which are a setting, characters, a problem, a plot, suspense, a point of view, and a theme, to tell a story. Drama is different from other literature in that it is performed by actors on stage or in a film in front of an audience.
The performers wear costumes to help portray their characters, and speak the dialogue. The stage is decorated to make it look like the setting of the story. Drama can be very entertaining.
Watching a drama unfold before your eyes is quite interesting, compared to reading literature, where you visualize the story in your mind. If a play or film has a talented cast who portray their characters well, and have a well-designed set, it can be a spectacle to watch. Drama is different from other literature in that it is performed in front of an audience and uses a set, lighting, music, and costumes.
