The book explores authorship in TV drama through a production study of Kampen for tilværelsen, the first author-controlled series produced by NRK Drama. The writing practices in the American and Danish television industries serve as a point of departure. The book also contemplates the creative possibilities and constraints of multi-season dramas, contrasting their narrative conventions and processes of creation to those of films and novels.
