Abstract

Crime is one of the most prevalent and most-viewed genres on our TV screens and the best-circulating type of fiction content in Europe. Studying the attitudes of television viewers to crime shows, therefore, promises an insight into European tastes and preferences when it comes to the genre of crime, as well as finding out about attitudes towards media cultures from other countries. This audience study has been a central piece in the work of the Horizon2020 Project DETECt which stands for “Detecting Transcultural Identity in European Crime Narratives”. The consortium of 19 partners in ten European countries began its work on the project in April 2018 and will close the project October 2021. So, it is a good time for sharing some of the results.
