Breaking the Offender - The Representation of Criminals in TV Series

Abstract [en]

Mass media play an important role in shaping public perceptions about different thematics, including crime and justice. The consumption of mediatic contents in different forms, such as newspapers, television news and crime dramas, can affect the way people perceive and interpret concepts as deviance and punishments, the attitude towards the criminal system and the level of concern for becoming a victim. In the last years, Streaming Videos On Demand platforms have made easier the access and the consumptions of contents as crime dramas; the changes in the modality of fruition have been followed by changes in the representation of characters, with the introduction and the increasing diffusion of morally ambiguous figures. This opens new possibilities of research, particularly regarding the modes of representation of criminals as antiheroes. The purpose of the article is then to investigate how the figure of the offender is constructed as antihero in four Original Netflix Productions (You, Narcos, Ozark, La Casa de Papel). A Critical Discourse Analysis of two narrative themes is conducted combining Marxist and Postmodernist interpretative approaches.
