    Biography/History

    American television networks began made-for-television movies in late 1964; by the early-1970s they had become a mainstay of network programming. Over the years, the range of movie offerings have been on par with theatrical film releases, within restricted timelines and budgets. Ultimately, television movies provided a venue for topical or controversial themes, not deemed appropriate for regularly scheduled network programing. The flexible time constraints of the medium made it possible to present full-legnth filmed versions of popular literary works, particularly through the TV mini-series.

    Scope and Content

    The collection consists of scripts for films made for television. Includes scripts for TV movies broadcast on various networks including ABC, CBS, HBO, NBC, and Showtime. Also includes scripts for television specials and mini-series. Among the many productions represented in the collection are All Quiet on the Western Front, Evita, Gideon's Trumpet, The Miracle Worker, Murder in Mississippi, Something About Amelia, Special Bulletin, and A Woman Called Golda

    Organization and Arrangement

    The collection is arranged alphabetically by production title.
