Python IMDbPY – Getting series details from the series id

  • Last Updated : 10 Feb, 2022

In this article we will see how we can get the series details from the IMDb data base, as on the IMDb site, each TV series and also each of a TV series’ episodes is treated as a regular title, just like movie. 
 

In order do this we have to do the following –
1. With the help of get_movie method get the series details from the code 
2. Save this movie object in variable 
3. Access this movie object similar to the dictionary 
4. Print the required result 
 

Below is the implementation 
 

Python3




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

Output : 
 

Mirzapur
[Person id:5883328[http] name:_Karan Anshuman_, Person id:4107081[http] name:_Puneet Krishna_, Person id:10172949[http] name:_Vineet Krishna_]
