Python IMDbPY – Getting writer of the series

  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the writers of the series. Writers are basically those person who wrote the whole strory of series there can be multiple writer of single series.

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 writer from the dictionary

Below is the implementation




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# id
code = "6468322"
  
# getting information
series = ia.get_movie(code)
  
# getting wruters of the series
writer = series.data['writer']
  
# printing the object i.e name
print(series)
  
# print the writers
print(writer)

Output :



Money Heist
[Person id:1210565[http] name:_Álex Pina_, Person id:8996721[http] name:_Javier Gómez Santander_, Person id:2651446[http] name:_Esther Martínez Lobato_]
