It’s hard to believe Hardcover’s been around for almost two years and we’ve never done a writing for television episode! We’re going to be talking about some of our favourite series from 2016 and look to what’s coming up in 2017!

 

Amazing how TV has developed in the past fifty years, from household sets with a few channels to online platforms like Netflix. What will TV be like for the next generation?
