With hard-hitting contemporary television programs such as “Breaking Bad” and “The Wire” leading to new forms of media entertainment, The New Yorker magazine television critic Emily Nussbaum will explore the new Golden Age of Television Nov. 6, 7 p.m., at University of Richmond’s Jepson Alumni Center.

Nussbaum will discuss “From ‘I Love Lucy’ to ‘Breaking Bad’: How Ambitious Modern Television Rebelled Against Formula by Exploding It,” examining how current programming turned classic genres inside-out and challenged popular television culture.

The Jepson School of Leadership Studies presents the annual Jepson Leadership Forum, which hosts programs featuring experts who explore leadership topics around a common theme. For 2013–14, the series is exploring “Culture Shock: The ART of Leading Society,” focusing on cultural transformation. The Department of Journalism is co-sponsoring Nussbaum’s appearance.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required at http://jepson.richmond.edu/forum  or by contacting Shannon Best, community programs coordinator, at 804-287-6522.
