Temporalité de la politique alternative dans les séries

Abstract : Based on the observation of a qualitative gap in the production of contemporary television series, this article questions the increasing autonomy of dramas’ film material, through the organization of their temporality. These TV shows offer a political analysis on the meaning of collective time. The assumption is that time as it is staged in TV shows is a time of a political alternative; which is composed of anticipations and proposals able to rebuild the community. This alternate time originates in three movements: the serialization operation that builds a complex and slow narration; the likelihood of a plurality of present times and new characters able to embody them; and utopian proposals, which expose the gap between the series and the actual world.
