Much of John Caldwell's work addresses this issue -- see TELEVISUALITY and
I follow his lead on this in my own book, TELEVISION STYLE (Routledge 2010).
See especially the chapter on MIAMI VICE and its use of a "cinematic"
Also, you may find John Ellis's book, VISIBLE FICTIONS, pertains to your
interests. It's a compare/contrast of film and TV.
