WHY IS FACT-BASED DRAMA & TV SO DOMINANT?

While I have worked in this genre (among others) for decades, I can’t remember a more exciting time in which audiences have so enthusiastically embraced this format – just look at this awards season’s lists. Perhaps it is a reaction to the fake news phenomena and deep fears generated by the world we currently find ourselves in? People want to try to make sense of an often disturbing reality. By bringing these stories to life with talented actors, the genre reaches far more people than most documentaries ever will. And I say that as someone who remains a documentarian too!
