Python IMDbPY – Getting series details fro the series id

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
