Aymar Christian and Khadijah Costley White theorize Perry’s place in the television history, explicitly in the context of his niche production system and industrial marketing practices. Christian and Costley White critique Perry’s dominance in the televisual landscape and the numerous ways in which his direct control over his media entities has compromised not only his content but also his company’s ethics and labor practices. Given that Perry’s television successes occurred concomitant with the fragmentation of key media marketplaces and given the lack of structural changes surrounding his productions, Christian’s and Costley White’s chapter ultimately questions (and redefines) the extent to which Perry has truly been a game-changer in the television industry.
