The Movie Database Support

Hello guys,

we saw that there is a new option to set a "known for" attribute for people on the website (i.e. acting). Will this attribute in the future also be available via the API (maybe via People -> "Get Details")?

Best regards

Hi there,

Yes, eventually it probably will be but I have not, nor plan to, work much on the API for a while. There's too many other things to do wink I have an open ticket for this here.

Okay, that's fair. Keep up the good work with TMDb. :)

The person method now also includes a known_for_department which you can use to know what department to build a persons "known for" data with.

Thank you very much!
