A legal drama, or a courtroom drama, is a genre of film and television that focuses on narratives regarding legal practice and the justice system. The American Film Institute defines "courtroom drama" as a genre of film in which a system of justice plays a critical role in the film's narrative. Legal dramas have followed the lives of the fictional attorneys, plaintiffs, or other persons related to the practice of law present in television show or film. Legal drama is distinct from police crime drama or detective fiction, which focus on police officers or detectives investigating and solving crimes; the focal point of legal dramas, more are events occurring within a courtroom, but may include any phases of legal procedure, such as jury deliberations or work done at law firms. Some legal dramas fictionalize real cases that have been litigated, such as the play-turned-movie, Inherit the Wind, which fictionalized the Scopes Monkey Trial; as a genre, the term "legal drama" is applied to television shows and films, whereas legal thrillers refer to novels and plays.
Legal dramas typical portray moral dilemmas that occur with the practice of the law or participating in the justice system, many of which mirrors dilemmas in real life. The American Bar Association Journal has interpreted the public's enjoyment of legal dramas occur because "stories about the legal system are laced with human vulnerability." Indeed though "there are no car chases... uns are never drawn", legal dramas retain strong followings because of their presentation of moral intrigue in a setting that reflects what occurs in the world. Legal dramas may present stories of the miscarriages of justice, such as persons wrongly convicted of a crime they did not commit. At times, stories may involve the moral implications of police misconduct, such as placing or tampering with evidence, such as in the 1993 film, In the Name of the Father. More legal dramas focus on the attorneys' point of view when faced with these difficulties. For instance, in The Practice, a television legal drama series revolving around a firm of criminal defense attorneys, a common theme presented is the difficulty of defending clients known or believed to be guilty.
Many legal dramas present themes that reflect politicized issues. In the 1960 film, Inherit the Wind, the politicized issue portrayed was the legality of a Tennessee statute that made it unlawful to teach the theory of evolution in a public school; as laws and public policy opinions change, so do the themes presented in legal dramas. The 1992 film, A Few Good Men, explored the psychology of superior orders, e.g. excusing criminal actions because they were only committed from'following orders'. The film Philadelphia addressed homophobia, the discrimination and public fear of HIV/AIDs carriers. In 1996, The People vs. Larry Flynt portrays the early years of Hustler Magazine and issues of obscenity and freedom of speech. You Don't Know Jack is a fictional biographic film about Dr. Jack Kevorkian and the legal actions he faced as a result of providing euthanasia services to terminal patients. Racial injustice remains a common theme from as far back as To Kill a Mockingbird in 1962 to the 2017 film Marshall.
Legal dramas in American film has an extensive history stemming from as early as the 1908 film, Falsely Accused! The 1950s and 1960s presented a number of legal drama films including, 12 Angry Men, Witness for the Prosecution, I Want to Live!, Anatomy of a Murder, The Young Philadelphians, Inherit the Wind, Judgment at Nuremberg,and To Kill a Mockingbird. Arguably, 12 Angry Men and To Kill a Mockingbird stand as the cornerstones of early legal dramas, garnering extensive acclaim and awards. Despite underwhelming box office performance, 12 Angry Men was nominated in three different categories at the 30th Academy Awards and appears on half of the AFI 100 Years... series lists of films, which celebrate the greatest films in American cinema. To Kill a Mockingbird received more acclaim, garnering three academy awards out of eight total nominations at the 35th Academy Awards, appears on seven of the AFI's ten lists celebrating the greatest films, including ranking as the best courtroom drama, selected for preservation United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally or aesthetically significant".
Other countries premiered legal dramas or courtrooms dramas in the early 1900s, such as the French silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc. Other legal drama films have not focused on the practice of law, such as Paper Chase, a film presenting the difficulty and anxiety of entering law school. Early American television programs considered legal dramas include Perry Mason, The Defenders, JUDD for the Defense, Owen Marshall, Counselor at Law and Matlock. More recent examples of serious legal dramas are The Practice and Law & Order; the two most notable examples of legal drama are Ally McBeal and Boston Legal, both of which David E. Kelley created and produced, with Suits as the most popular legal drama currently. Legal dramas are becoming more in demand from the public, more popular for many people to watch, beginning to feature stronger female leads, it is believed by most practicing lawyers that legal dramas result in the general public having misconceptions about the legal process. Many of these misconceptions result from the desire to create an interesting story.
For example, because conflict between parties make for an interesting story, legal dramas emphasize the trial and ignore the fact that the vast majority of civil and criminal cases in the United States are settled out of court. Tr

Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox completed on March 20, 2019, 12:02 AM. 20th Century Fox Television was formed in 1949 as other studios were branching out into television production as well. At that time, the company was known as TCF Television Productions, Inc. until 1958. Decades TCFTV folded the operations of TV production companies it has acquired: Metromedia Producers Corporation in 1986, New World Entertainment in 1997, MTM Enterprises in 1998, is the current distributor for most of the shows produced by these companies.

TCFTV produced the first two series that aired on Fox's sister network, MyNetworkTV: the telenovelas Desire and Fashion House. In 1989, 20th Century Fox Television's functions were taken over by Twentieth Television Corporation, a separate entity from 20th Century Fox Film Corporation. Both companies were subsidiaries of News Corporation unit Fox Inc.. Following a 1994 restructuring of Fox's television production companies, 20th Television was refocused on syndication and "non-traditional programs", while network television programming once more came under the 20th Century Fox Television banner and returned to being a division of the movie studio. In 1997, MTM Enterprises became part of 20th Century Fox Television, thus remains an in-name only division of TCFTV.

Misanthropy is the general hatred, distrust or contempt of the human species or human nature. A misanthrope or misanthropist is someone who holds such feelings; the word's origin is from the Greek words μῖσος and ἄνθρωπος. The condition is confused with asociality. Gustave Flaubert once declared that he would "die of suppressed rage at the folly of fellow men." Misanthropy has been ascribed to a number of writers of satire, such as William S. Gilbert and William Shakespeare. Jonathan Swift is believed to have been misanthropic. Poet Philip Larkin has been described as a misanthrope. Molière's play. Less famous, but more contemporary is the 1971 play by Françoise Dorin, Un sale égoïste which takes the point of view of the misanthrope and entices the viewer to understand his motives. Michelangelo has been called a misanthrope. Don Van Vliet has been described as a misanthrope, with close friend Kristine McKenna stating that he "thought human beings were the worst species, dreamed up". Morrissey, a songwriter, has been dubbed "pop's most famous misanthrope".
Fernando Pessoa's "factless autobiography" The Book of Disquiet has been described as misanthropic. The pre-Socratic philosopher Heraclitus was by various accounts a misanthrope and a loner who had little patience for human society. In a fragment, the philosopher complained that "people forever without understanding" of what was, in his view, the nature of reality. In Western philosophy, misanthropy has been connected to isolation from human society. In Plato's Phaedo, Socrates describes a misanthrope in relation to his fellow man: "Misanthropy develops when without art one puts complete trust in somebody thinking the man true and sound and reliable and a little discovers him to be bad and unreliable... and when it happens to someone often... he ends up... hating everyone." Misanthropy is presented as a potential result of thwarted expectations or excessively naïve optimism, since Plato argues that "art" would have allowed the potential misanthrope to recognize that the majority of men are to be found in between good and evil.
Aristotle follows a more ontological route: the misanthrope, as an solitary man, is not a man at all: he must be a beast or a god, a view reflected in the Renaissance view of misanthropy as a "beast-like state". There is a difference between philosophical misanthropy. Immanuel Kant said that "Of the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing can be made", yet this was not an expression of the uselessness of mankind itself. Kant further stated that hatred of mankind can take two distinctive forms: aversion from men and enmity towards them; the condition can arise from dislike and from ill-will. Martin Heidegger has been said to show misanthropy in his concern of the "they"—the tendency of people to conform to one view, which no one has thought through, but is just followed because, "they say so"; this might be thought of as more a criticism of conformity than of people in general. Unlike Schopenhauer, Heidegger was opposed to any systematic ethics. In the Judeo philosophies, the Jewish philosopher Saadia Gaon uses the Platonic idea that the self-isolated man is dehumanized by friendlessness to argue against the misanthropy of anchorite asceticism and reclusiveness.
Misanthropy is more pronounced among people from specific professions among content moderators. This outlook derives from the serious psychological toll of reviewing violent, sexually abusive, disturbing content for a living. In Nautilus, Leonard Mlodinow writes of Isaac Newton, "It would be nice to be able to say that this giant of intellect was an empathetic, agreeable man, but if he had any such tendencies he did a good job suppressing them and coming off as an arrogant misanthrope."
