Drawing on interviews with writers David Chase, David Simon, David Milch, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and Vince Gilligan, among others, along with the network executives responsible for green-lighting these fresh shows, The Revolution Was Televisedis the story of how a new golden age was born, one that's as rich with drama and thrills as the very shows themselves.show more
