Hullo,
I've noticed in my travels some TV movies which are actually episodes of TV shows. For instance:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0122431/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0122432/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0122433/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123676/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123677/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123678/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123679/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0123680/

These are all episodes of an eight-part TV show called "Chock" that was aired in 1997.

Then there are also these:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435206/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462438/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462437/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0485540/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0485539/

These are all episodes of a five-part TV show called "Julian Fellowes Investigates: A Most Mysterious Murder".

None of them are TV movies.

Best wishes,
Mateja

Having only viewed the IMDb pages and not the programs themselves, in my opinion, the title links you've posted should be listed in the database as TV series, not TV movies. Also, the deletion of the keyword tv-short and the addition of the keyword tv-mini-series may also need to be added to each TV series title. 

Basically, a new title page for each program would need to be created before moving the pages. After the new pages have been processed, then the links above can be moved to each series page. 

"Julian Fellowes Investigates: A Most Mysterious Murder" (2004)
(The first segment aired in 2004. The other four episodes aired in 2005.) 

"Chock" (1997)

Please wait for an official IMDb representative for a response on this matter.

Hi Mateja,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, I have filed a ticket with our data editors who will investigate the titles. If you have any additional information or evidence that indicates that they should be listed as episodes of a series, please add that to this thread and our data editors will use this information within their investigation.

Thanks
Meredith
