The Movie Database Support

Dear TMDb team,

I've just created an [Wikipedia article] about The Movie Database. For improving the article I would like to have some statistics, e.g. how many movies have an entry and how many users are active.

Also I'm interested in the history of this project. Who has founded this project, how are you paying the servers and who is leading it now?

Greetings, kopiersperre

Hi Kopiersperre,

Thanks for this. I tried to do this a while back but kept running into issues because I was the founder.

Here's a couple of things for you to add/change:

  • Our official URL is, not
  • I founded TMDb in 2008
  • I sold TMDb to Fan TV in 2010 but have continued to work on and manage it
  • Right now we average ~12,000 edits per day
  • We have 234,000 movies, 62,000 TV shows (1.04 million tv episodes) and 583,000 people in our db
  • Our data and images are used by over 50 million people per month

Thanks again.
