A series may have one or several seasons, with a number of episodes belonging to each. Here’s a quick guide to series structure.
Representing Series in your Registrations
If you are registering a series with Screenrights, please consider providing as much production and serial structure information as possible. A series may have one or several seasons, with a number of episodes belonging to each. By providing accurate and complete information Screenrights is better placed to match your program to royalties.
Here is an example of how a series called “Screenrights” may be registered:
Series: Screenrights (2015)
Season 01 (2015)
Season 01, Episode 01 (2015)
Season 01, Episode 02 (2015)
Season 01, Episode 03 (2015)
Season 02 (2016)
Season 02, Episode 01 (2016)
Season 02, Episode 02 (2016)
Season 02, Episode 03 (2016)
and so on…
Screenrights asks for information about your program on the series level as this provides us with an umbrella of key data. This data ensures we match registrations to the correct royalties.
Providing Screenrights with information about each episode is equally important: the greater the complexity of the information provided to us about your program, the more efficient our team can be in finding the royalties that belong to you.
