What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is audience-centered commercial culture that keeps people amused, engaged, and diverted. It’s the stuff of movies, TV, books, music, games, sports, and other recreational activities. These forms of entertainment are often characterized by their ability to cross over and interact with different media, which makes them both accessible and transmedial. Entertaiment is also the name of an agency that represents creative and technical talent in film, television, games, music, and live performance.
