Python IMDbPY – Getting plot of the series

In this article we will see how we can get the plot of the series. Plot is the sequence of events where each affects the next one through the principle of cause-and-effect. The causal events of a plot can be thought of as a series of events linked by the connector “and so”.

In order to get this we have to do the following –

1. Get the series details with the help of get_movie method
2. As this object will act as dictionary therefore we have to filter the object
3. Get the main data of object with the help of data method which will return dictionary
4. Get the plot from the dictionary

Below is the implementation

# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# getting plot of the series
plot = series.data['plot']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
# print the plot
print(plot)
