Go To

Family Drama is a genre revolving around conflicts between family members. In a more general sense, any work of fiction about the relationships within a family. The longer, non-funny version of the Dom Com. Expect lots of this in a Big, Screwed-Up Family. On Live-Action TV, it usually comes in Dramatic Hour Long shows. Many Soap Operas overlap with this genre. See also Teen Drama.
