It does. My experience with these methods includes history and science documentary, feature documentary in music, art and history as well as sports, entertainment and natural history. There are blog posts (Jack of All Trades, Hard Science ) where I talk about how using these methods has opened me up to working on stories in any genre.
There is a huge difference in having massive expertise in a particular genre or format (which many people I have worked with have) and a universal approach that can be applied to all stories. The methods I teach apply universally to structure any story, and then allow you to use your own particular approaches with the knowledge that your structure is sound.
