How Can I change original title to working title?

Hi all, the British TV Series "Kate & Koji" (2020) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10949294 was originally submitted to IMDb under its working title of "Kate and Kobe" (2020). Kate & Koji has been added as the New Title and appears as such on the site as the IMDb display title - but Kate and Kobe is showing as the Original Title and as a second IMDb display title when Kate and Kobe should be listed as an Alternate Title with the attribute working title.

How can I correct this as "Kate and Kobe" (2020) does not appear in the Alternate Title section so I can neither edit nor delete it and the title of the TV Series has already been corrected to Kate & Koji via the Title Correction section in Other Corrections?

This issue seems to be causing confusion for other users - for example when they post a review of the title as the review is for "Kate and Kobe" (2020) rather than "Kate & Koji" (2020).

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
Mark

If you submitted a title correction it doesn't seems to have been accepted. IMDb may have added it as a "new title" instead.

Maybe you could try again with evidence of the original title, such as a screen grab from the first episode and/or TV listings from the time of release. You may also post it here along with your submission reference number.

Hi Peter, thank you for your reply to my question. I have now submitted a correction to the title and submitted the creation of a new Alternate Title with the attribute working title with both having the following explanation attached to them:- 

This title was originally submitted to IMDb under the working title "Kate and Kolo" (2020) - here is a link to the announcement of the series under that working title from Variety - https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/brenda-blethyn-star-new-itv-sitcom-kate-kolo-1203310428/ However, the title of the series as shown on-screen upon broadcast has changed to "Kate & Koji" (2020). Here is a link to the official webpage of the series showing the title as Kate & Koji - https://www.itv.com/hub/kate-koji/2a7658  "Kate & Koji" (2020) has been submitted as a New Title for the series but "Kate and Kolo" (2020) has been retained as the Original Title of the series. "Kate & Koji" (2020) should be the IMDb Display Title for the series and "Kate and Kolo" (2020) should be removed as the Original Title and instead be added as an Alternate Title for the UK with the Attribute working title.

Hopefully, the data editors will be able to use that information to rectify the issue.
Thanks for the advice.

Hi Mark, 

Thanks for flagging. 

I can confirm that these corrections have now been made to the title page. Please allow 24 hours for these changes to display across all platforms.

Many thanks again
