This paper describes work that has been undertaken on, and related to, the OntoMedia ontology. Having provided an overview of the ontology and the way in which it can be used to describe the content of fictional and non-fictional narratives, we present a summary of research done using the principles of the OntoMedia ontology to support the description of television drama and an investigation of how TEI and RDFa might be used to automatically generate content descriptions for plays and screenplays which can be used to launch the annotation process.
