Another case of can't add "as" attribute on a released production

I was trying to edit the cast of an episode of Happy! (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt7509504) and got this error message, despite the episode having been released on Wednesday.


I assume the problem is that it is still marked as being in post-product.



Okay, now I'm a little surprised to find that I can edit the production status. I've never done that before. I've changed it to released but it didn't ask for a date (which seems a little odd). So, maybe this isn't a problem.

Hello, Adrian. 

I can add that a lot of titles are glitching beng stuck in development while they even has a release date. MacGuyver (2016) had the same problem for quite some time.

If you have have IMDbPro, you can edit the development status. If not, you can post the episodes with a problem and I can change them. It's not the instantaneous edits that some other fields have but the production status changed overnight after my edit and I was able to add the attribute.

Hi both,

We derive the released status now from the release date, not the "released" production status so please make any amendments to that field instead. Did this episode have a release date that was live and past the date you tried to add the (as) attribute or was it missing from that episode at that point?

Regards,
Will

Yes, Will. The episode had the correct release date a few days before I tried to edit it and received this error. It is in the second picture of the original post. The release date was January 17, 2018. When the release status went to "released" the next day, the error went away.

Thank you, it looks like the released status was held up internally by the system. This has now been resolved.
