Composer of entire tv series with 155 episodes needs to be added. I have other imdb credits listed already.

Hello, I'm a composer who has many current credits on IMDB. There are some TV productions I have scored, but have not been listed on the IMDB site with the run of the entire series. It appears, to correct this, one goes to the "edit" page, then the composer box & adds each individual episode. In some cases, I have over 100 episodes in the run of that series. It seems like there might be a more efficient way of doing this, like sending an attachment by email of the sections of my BMI catalog that apply to the specific show series. BMI is very thorough with their documentation of show productions. Is there a way of solving this without the lengthy data entry of each individual episode title being entered on the current IMDB edit page?

Go to the IMDb page for the overall series, rather than the pages for the individual episodes. Hit the series' "edit" button and choose to add 1 composer credit.

There will be an episode box on the form with a little squiggly icon at the bottom right. Click on the icon and you'll pull up a list of the episodes that the IMDb knows about. You can choose whichever episodes are appropriate and submit.

Basically, no one at IMDB will add data for you unless there are special circumstances (usually where only staff can make the changes or it is easier for staff to do rather than explain) and just having to add a lot of credits presumably doesn't qualify, although it is always possible they have a bulk add tool I don't know about.

The problem is you can only add them 10 at a time, but the good news is you don't need to give it much attention - just copy and paste in the TV episode format 10 times, edit in the new episode numbers, hit submit, rinse, wash and repeat. Adding TV credits can be a rather dull but not very taxing task and I find it easier to do on the laptop (or a tablet for all you hip young things) whilst watching something on TV, so I don't feel like my time is wasted (as I was already sitting there) and there is something to distract me when I'm getting bored.

Hello Emperor - do you have any ideas for this one regarding soundtrack? https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/soundtrack-info-not-visible-on-episode-pages?rfm=1&topic...

I've got a similar issue: currently a show which was made by my colleagues (a British tv discussion programme called "After Dark") is shown on IMDB as having had two episodes. In fact there were 90 episodes in all, five seasons across two different broadcasters and a number of one-off specials. I have tried reading various comments and also looking at the systems but there seems to be no way of sorting this out without my adding the remaining 88 separate episode titles one at a time (!!!): is that really right?

Yes, that is right.

See my reply in your other thread for more details.
