I’m a scriptwriter and director and my research is about sitcoms in different countries.
American sitcoms are understood throughout the world, but Chinese sitcoms are only understood in China. The reason for this phenomena is that western audiences do not understand the Chinese cultural background to the sitcom.
I have devised a sitcom series called “Dark Time” that combines features of both western and Chinese sitcoms. I’ve written and directed episode one of the sitcom series.
The sitcom focuses on mobile phones usage. People more and more rely on their phones, using them for multiple hours per day. The title refers to the experience people would have if they were without their phones.
