1. Get the series details with the help of get_movie method
2. Add episodes info-set to it with the of update method
3. As this object will act as dictionary therefore we have to filter the object

# adding new info set
ia.update(series, 'episodes')

episodes = series.data['episodes']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
print("==================")
  
# printing episodes
print(episodes)
