Hi guys. I've had a number of credit submissions approved for television but they're not showing up on my filmography. How do I sort that out?

Although approved, it can take between 24-48 hours (more or less) for credits to appear in a filmography.

Please post the 18-digit reference number of the submissions so an IMDb representative can review the updates and respond. 

Also, check the Data Processing Times page for any data backlogs.

From the image you've posted, all of the submissions have been updated.

For the items listed as New Episode, go to each series page and under the Episode section, click either Season or Year and the episodes that were submitted are listed.

Did you intend to add your name to some of the episodes? Go to each episode page and submit an update.

Which credits were supposed to appear in the filmography and in which sections? Please write back to clarify.

Thank you for the response. These are all meant to be my credits in my filmography. I wrote all of these episodes. How do I get them to appear in my filmography? I assumed that because when you submit them, it asks what your role was and I clicked "writer" that they would automatically pick up on my name and add them as credits to my filmography.

Two paths to consider:

Path #1: Submit the writing credits from each series episode page.

Path #2: Submit the writing credits from the series title's main page.

Instructions for both are listed below.

IMDB Help Center:
How do I add an episodic credit?

Each episode was created and published. However, the writing credits were not included in your submissions.

You'll be asked to add your name and occupation in the Writers section. Type the name this way.

Last name Jr., First name

Under Attribute, click the symbol to the right of the Attribute field (). A drop-down menu will appear with a list of writing titles. Click the item that you were listed in the credits for each episode.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.
