The Movie Database Support

I might just be tired and not thinking clearly. (I might delete this later after some rest and a clearer head haha :sweat_smile: )

For pilots, do you:

a) credit all cast members as guest stars for "episode 1"? (seems strange to add any "season regular" credits to an entry for a pilot...? no?)

b) credit all cast members as season regulars for "season 1"? (seems strange to add any "guest star" credits to an entry for a pilot...? how can you be a guest star in a pilot- there's only one episode- kinda like a movie)

c) credit all cast members that were intended to be season regulars (entries for pilots are TV shows that failed- there were cast members intended to be season regulars if the show continued further), and credit all other cast members as guest stars to "episode 1".

I'm bringing this up because maybe this is something that should be clarified in the contribution bible. I don't actually forsee needing the answer to this question too much in the future (I don't go intentionally watching pilots). However I do need the answer for a game show I added called, "The Exit List". In this case, I have gone with option c. I added the show's host as a season regular (for season 1) even though there's only one episode- the pilot, and the contestants in that episode as guest stars.

It doesn't matter whether the pilot was picked up or not. They are still series regulars and are credited as such in the opening credits, press releases and whatnot.
