Python IMDbPY – Getting plot outline of the series
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the plot outline of the series. A plot outline is a prose telling of a story which can be turned into a screenplay. Sometimes it is called a “one page” because of its length. It is generally longer and more detailed than a standard synopsis, which is usually only one or two paragraphs, but shorter and less detailed than a treatment or a step outline.

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 outline details from the dictionary

Below is the implementation




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6077448"
  
# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# getting plot outline of the series
outline = series.data['plot outline']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
# print the outline
print(outline)

Output :



Sacred Games
Sartaj Singh, a Mumbai police officer, receives an anonymous phone call from a gangster who threatens to blow up the entire city. Amid the corrupt standards of Indian law enforcement begins a battle between a 'nobody' cop and ruthless gangster who perceives (sometimes) himself to be a God.

Another example




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6473300"
  
# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# getting plot outline of the series
outline = series.data['plot outline']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
# print the outline
print(outline)

Output :

Mirzapur
The iron-fisted Akhandanand Tripathi is a millionaire carpet exporter and the mafia don of Mirzapur. His son, Munna, is an unworthy, power-hungry heir who will stop at nothing to inherit his father’s legacy. An incident at a wedding procession forces him to cross paths with Ramakant Pandit, an upstanding lawyer, and his sons, Guddu and Bablu. It snowballs into a game of ambition, power and greed that threatens the fabric of this lawless city!
