Let me take you you on an exploration of New York and London through their most emblematic TV series!
ABOUT THE BINGE WATCHING COLLECTION
Discover the essence of New York and London with a passionately researched deep-dive into their representations on the small screen. The two volumes are organized by chapters focusing on major TV shows, neighborhoods and themes, with an introduction about their socio-cultural significance.
I have devised original behind-the-scenes tours that include all the iconic locations the fans might expect, as well as new addresses inspired by the lifestyle of the most beloved TV characters. Featuring hundreds of illustrations and curated maps (also available online to facilitate navigation on the go), the guides are both practical and beautifully designed.
The collection is the perfect companions for TV addicts, tourists looking for a personalized way to travel, or anyone interested in the history of television and urban culture. With the passion of a fan and the eye of an anthropologist, I will show you how New York and London are so much more than a backdrop.
