"I do not think that American TV and film companies consider any other markets when they make their decisions."
I don't believe American Business even thinks anymore. Seriously.
This is indeed curious. After all, it is an indisputable fact that the Anglo-Saxons (namely British and Americans) make the best historians. Or, if you prefer, they are a History (science) superpower.
But for some reason businessmen are not interested about these high quality, internationally reputed scholars They only serve to the audience the leftovers: light, sensationalist programmes (gross, childish mistakes are common, easily detected). It is as if they thought the mass of the people do not deserve caviar (which is plenty at hand).
And yes, I am describing the History Channel.
Do you have a source for the claim that Anglo-Saxons (British and Americans) make the best historians?
It is not that I want to argue with you about this but that it would be nice for me to know if there is any research done about this.
Continue to engage the enemy.
