Let's face it: everyone is stressed out these days. Especially, it seems, in the United States. The 2017 World Happiness Report has listed The United States as the 14th happiest country in the world, which is down from 13th place in 2016. More specifically, since the contentious election last November, stress levels among Americans have increased nearly a full percent--over the span of just a few short months. We are tired. We are cranky. And, more than ever, we are in desperate need of some good old fashioned escapism.

Enter DramaFever, the new home of feel good TV!

The endless barrage of negativity on our social feeds and news networks is not just exhausting, it’s often downright depressing. We want, more than ever, to be able to disconnect and immerse ourselves into a kind world where the good guys finish first, the bad guys finish last, and no matter what happens, a happy ending is always right around the corner. With so much uncertainty and instability these days, an increasing number of Americans are turning to "feel good television" for some much-needed stress relief: it's the ultimate comfort food.
