Resumen

GOMEZ MORALES, Beatriz. The definition of an own narrative. The Spanish television comedy (1990-2018). Cuad.inf. [online]. 2020, n.46, pp.342-366. ISSN 0719-3661.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7764/cdi.46.1804.

In the early nineties, Spanish television fiction began an unprecedented evolution. The aim of this research is to examine, through a content analysis, the defining features of the genre that led this evolution: comedy. The study includes all the comic fiction of Spanish production released between 1990 and 2018 (180 productions on State networks) and analyses it based on its narrative and stylistic characteristics. The results show that, after a brief period of faithful adaptation to the sitcom, the Spanish television comedy began to develop its own identity. Although it retains some of the defining features of the North American canonical reference, such as stereotypical characters, interior settings and the setting in the contemporary world, it has ignored others, like the average duration of 22 to 24 minutes, the introduction of live or prerecorded laughter and the exclusively episodic structure. In addition, the genre, in its Spanish form, has incorporated new features, such as the shift from the comic to the dramatic, the expansion of the number of plots and main characters, and the introduction of continuity plots and other elements of serialization. Likewise, the Spanish television comedy has integrated an important part of the national theater and film tradition.
