Créateurs et créatures de séries télévisées : une poïétique du personnage

Abstract : There is a “space” between the author and his character. This is the place of the creation, although screenwriters and showrunners conscientiously avoid it in their interviews and their testimonies. Just as electricity gave Frankenstein’s creature its life in Mary Shelley’s novel, what animates audiovisual characters appears to creators as some sort of magical and otherworldly energy. Nevertheless, the specific question of the characters’ poïesis is all the more significant concerning TV series, since characters have a major importance in it, assuring its coherence and its sapidity. We concentrated our work on ten contemporary showrunners and their TV shows. Relying on one hand on those creators’ intuition on the subject – which manifested in diverse interviews within their respective careers – and, on the other hand, on the analysis of the series and their bibles, we propose to conceptualize this “magic energy”.
