Hi ClaymanX,

At this time, origin_country is not a supported filter. I've created a new ticket for this here.



Is there any movement toward having this filter live? Really excited to have latest (and continuous) updates from France or Italy.


Hi @Serhiy,

Are you looking for a solution for movies or for TV shows? Movies already supports querying the release dates by region so you should be able to get what you're after there. For TV shows, no, origin country is not yet hooked up.

Hi @Travis,

The movies are exactly what I'm looking for, however and to be honest, I don't figure out how I can discover the movies for given "origin_country" with the region, certification_country, release_dates... and other filters.

For example movie:

that is produced in Italy with the API response attributes:

    :name=>"Lotus Production",
 :production_countries=>[{:iso_3166_1=>"IT", :name=>"Italy"}]

AND with many release_dates:


So, what would be the filter combination to receive this and similar movies using /discovery API and "IT" country code?




I have used "with_original_language" filter to discover movies for given country and the result is pretty close to what I wanted to achieve initially. Maybe this workaround would also be helpful to somebody else...

thanks, Serhiy

Happy to hear it Serhiy.

Hey @travisbell ,

Is there any progress on adding "origin_country" filter to the Discover TV Shows API? Would be quite helpful.
