The Year That Was Peak TV, Tackling Tough Social Issues

Hosted by and

When John Landgraf, the head of FX, gave us the phrase "Peak TV" over the summer, he spawned a lot of debate and a massive number of think pieces. But seriously. There is a TON of TV out there. Can the industry sustain it? And does all this content come with a price?

Last year we talked about the industry hesitancy to take on certain social issues. This year, the landscape has changed for the better as shows took on everything from abortion to gun control to mental health issues to transgender awareness. Does this improvement relate back to Peak TV?
