Each episode of America in Primetime focuses on one character archetype that has remained a staple of primetime through the generations the Man of the House, the Independent Woman, the Misfit, and the Crusader capturing both the continuity of the character, and the evolution.

MAN OF THE HOUSE- In 1950s television, the man of the house was king of his castle, but then he began losing control. Was it all an illusion to begin with?

INDEPENDENT WOMAN- Far removed from the model housewife of yesterday, women today on TV care less about pleasing others and more about being true to themselves.

THE MISFIT -Whether they are oddballs, losers or just plain weird, misfits have grown beyond comic stereotypes and are taking center stage with a vengeance, refusing to apologize for who they are.

THE CRUSADER- Heroes today are complex. Their stories are told with increasing humanity, depicting characters who confront almost impossible choices as they fight evil in a world where the line between right and wrong is often blurred.
