Hi, Rebecca Spark.

"How to submit countries for titles:
  • IMDb defines the country of a title as the place or places where the production companies for that title are based, and therefore where the financing originated. This means, for example, even if a title is shot on location in France, if its production companies are all based in the USA, we record the country as USA.
  • If a title is a multi-country production, the order the countries are entered into the addition/update forms is significant and will be reflected in the display order within IMDb."
If you are going to add more countries for the series, it should be done on the series level and not per episode.

Or episodes for that series are produced by different companies?

Rebecca,

There appears to be a technical issue that only an IMDb representative will be able to correct. I'm adding more information below so the reps can look into the problem.

Thanks for the message.

------

To IMDb reps,

The drop-down menu to add the country name is not working. In my case, on the Adding a New Episode form, to the right of Country,  the word Choose is the only item listed on the drop-down.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled The base is not allowing to add "Country" to new episodes of series..

The base is not allowing to add "Country" to new episodes of series. So it is not accepting new episodes.  What's wrong with this new field?
