A major new crime drama is set to distort reality into an easily understood narrative and present viewers with clear black and white examples of right and wrong, HardBite productions announced today.
In a move away from such popular shows as the Wire, Breaking Bad, and Borgen, HardBite productions is set to distill the complex details of the drama's plot into a compressed and sanitised form ready made for television.
"Sure, shows like 'Breaking Bad' might have their appeal, but research shows that viewers much prefer a rinky-dink, rose-tinted approach and characters who are easily understood as either heroes or villains", said the producers. "We're confident that by feeding viewers a diet of good things happening to heroes and bad things to villains, we can win a far greater audience share than these shows which introduce moral ambiguity and unexpected twists in the narrative".
TV expert Dave Trendy commented; "This is a shrewd move from HardBite. A lot of viewers think they want dramas to be realistic, but actually they much prefer events to be compressed and sanitised in a way which would never happen in real life. Likewise they love to see the kind of happy endings and natural justices which are so sorely apparent by their absence in the real world. By making a virtue of this, HardBite are set to take the early evening market by storm."
HardBite are set to release the first in their new season of dramas next week. The first episode of 'Good Guys Triumph and Bad Guys Get What They Deserve' will appear on ITV1 at 8.30, Monday.
