Book Description

June 8 2012 3515101187 978-3515101189
This book is an exploration of televisual place, undertaken through a case study of Orange County, California, and three popular U.S. television shows set therein: The OC, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, and The Real Housewives of Orange County. Place is a meaningful experience in the world, and it is made through a unique intersection of social processes. Place is much more than the material embodiment of social processes in a particular location, it is also an amalgam of memory, emotion, and imagination. Places of the media fit this description. More than just re-presentations of reality, mediated places are an inextricable part of our daily lives, and directly engage the processes of place-making by affecting our perception, senses, and subjectivity. These three Orange County based television shows are used to demonstrate how production techniques contribute to the place-making process and how this process continues and culminates with audience engagement. TV's use of landscape images, the concept of emotional realism, and reality television's claim to the real are explored for their role in the televisual place-making process. Audience surveys and the phenomenon of TV-induced tourism demonstrate the importance of televisual places to viewers. This book seeks to prove that mediated places, especially as seen on TV, matter. bea13
