create a listing for a film version and a television series version of the film

This film Off Country was originally listed as a feature film (95 minutes duration). It premiered at Melbourne International Film Festival and had a theatrical release in Australia. Then it was re-edited into 4 episodes (25 mins each approx) for broadcast television in Australia (NITV). How can I list it as both a feature film and as a TV series so that the crew that worked on each version can be credited?

Usually different versions are added to the ”Alternate versions” category in the title page, but I guess there are also exceptions (like perhaps that the TV series features a lot of actors that are not in the original film etc).

Hi pfmccabe -

Typically, as eboy mentioned above, if a new version of a title is released the information is captured within the ”Alternate versions” section, as well as by adding the release date for the new version to the existing title page.

However, if there are substantial differences between the original film version and the series version, then the title may be eligible for a separate listing on the site (ie. different runtime, new or replaced  cast/crew, different narrative arc, etc.).

Let us know if you have further questions.

Thanks for your help Michelle and eboy. There are substantial differences between the film and the tv series version, so I'll try to add a separate listing.
