I'm trying to add a new short, Still Water Runs Deep ( However, the system is flagging it as suspected TV content, so I can't create the entry. How do I fix this?

We recently started blocking TV content that kept getting added as movies.

How are you trying to add it? what are you filling in where, maybe there's something that triggered it.

// EDIT: I just reproduced the error:

Checking the title...

 Suspected TV Content
The validation failed because:

is invalid

Then when I click next, I see the same screen for a split second but instead of "title" it says "overview language", and then it just proceed to the additional details step. Then, when I think I can create it, it says:

Verify & Save

I totally forgot about this issue, and didn't link to it in the mod section at first, but now I did. Let's hope Travis can fix this!

Yes, I see you could add it today! Great! Wonder what caused it...

// EDIT: Seems like it's the overview.. the imdb copy pasta one is fine, but the official is not:

Within a small Nigerian family, the father is the patriarch and protector of his flock. Still Water Runs Deep tells the intimate story of a man whose concealed emotions begin to stir when faced with the portent of a missing son.
