What is in my head is very visual, so there is similarities to tv, and if we are being honest, my chapters are a bit more like scenes.
I believe just about anything can be structured to be episodic, and certainly the format of serial writing fits my style well, I spent quite a while trying not to write short serial fiction and it didn't work well at all.
Ultimately I don't apply much in the way of theory of tv/film to my writing, partly due to lack of knowledge. Though while I do feel that writing can benefit from mining other mediums, text fiction is not tv or film. Seems like an obvious statement, but hey, I'm happy to make the obvious statement.
Tv and film are the children of writing and writing is the child of oral storytelling. They all have their different challenges.
So, yeah there is common ground. Only natural that there would be. The trick is in finding what to take and what to convert to the world of text. This is a bit of a tangent, but in a small way, text is also visual.
You can do interesting things with placement and spacing and so on. I'm kinda veering off topic though.
Anyway the story is more than the medium.
