Companies that make television (TV) shows make a new kinds of shows. They are about real life. They can be sad stories. They can be hard to watch. People are very interested in them. They learn from them.

In the 1970s, people make a TV show like this for the first time. It is about American slavery. A TV director says that this show is important. It shows people that slavery is bad. It makes them think differently.

TV shows have similar impacts now. One show makes people want to find out more about crimes. They want the police to solve the crimes.

Many of these new shows win awards. More TV companies want to make them.

Difficult words: slavery (the idea that a person owns another person), similar impact (the same thing happens), solve (find out what happens).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
