In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, American television truly became a fundamental part of the American lifestyle. It frequently depicted individuals and families in current-day settings that the audience could relate to and remain interested in for years at a time. These television shows often include a significant amount of humor. They discuss and display classic issues in American society in this period. For example, "The New Adventures of Old Christine" follows a divorced now-single mother who owns a women's gym and her ex-husband who has replaced her with a new girlfriend with the same name. On the other hand, "7th Seven" shows the family of a Protestant minister - he, his wife, and their seven children. "7th Heaven" dealt with many complex social issues, including addiction, racism, teenage pregnancy, and bullying.
The collection consists of 50 scripts of late 20th and early 21st century American television programs. Included are 38 scripts from "New Adventures of Old Christine," seven scripts from "7th Heaven," two scripts from "Friends," two scripts from "Moonlight," and one from "Hot Properties."
Arranged in chronological order.
