Target Audience

Me and my group have decided to make a horror film trailor for this project and we have also decided on the target audience. It will be aimed at people in their late teens and older. It will be mainly for males (since its probably not something you would take your girlfriend to see but if thats your idea of romance then thats fine)but females will see this also (hopefully).

The Rough Side Of The Law

The rough side of the law is my tv drama also created by Mamun Choudhury and Jason Marsh (ish).
It is a cop drama set in 1980's Manchester and will air every wednesday at 9pm due to the use of stronge language and violence. There are a few main characters that consist of a stereotypical group of people e.g a joker, a serious one, a sexy girl, a hard man ect.
It is a serious program but there is an element of comedy and happiness so its not just a mum and dad thing to watch. There will be eight episodes in a series with a two part episode in there. The rough side of the law will be on BBC 2 (if they want it of course).

EastEnders is a popular and award-winning television soap opera first broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC One on 19 February 1985. It currently ranks as one of the most watched shows in the United Kingdom. EastEnders storylines examine the domestic and professional lives of the people who live and work in the fictional London Borough of Walford in the East End of London. The series primarily centres around the residents of Albert Square, a Victorian square of terraced houses, and its neighbouring streets, namely Bridge Street, Turpin Road and George Street, and which encompasses a pub, street market, night club, community centre and various small businesses, in addition to a park and allotments.The series was originally screened as two half-hour episodes per week. Today, four episodes are broadcast each week on BBC One (each episode is repeated on BBC Three at 10pm) and an omnibus edition screens on Sunday afternoons. It is one of the UK's highest-rated programmes, often appearing near or at the top of the week's BARB ratings. Within eight months of its launch, it reached the number one spot in the ratings, and has remained, almost consistently, among the top-rated TV programmes in Britain ever since. The average audience share for an episode is currently between 35% and 45%. Created by producer Julia Smith and script editor Tony Holland, EastEnders has remained a significant programme in terms of the BBC's success and audience share, and also in the history of British television drama, tackling many controversial and taboo issues previously unseen on mainstream television in the UK.
