The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at support@themoviedb.org.

Sincerely,

Travis

Hi, I'm working on an autocomplete form that returns the five most popular people who fit the search text. So after typing "Chris" for example, the API will return: "Christopher Walken, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Farley, Chris Lee, Chris Evans", if these were the actors with the biggest number assigned to their popularity property, with Christopher Walken being the most popular, then Hemsworth, and so on.

The example I've been working with:
https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/person?api_key=#####&language=en-US&query=Chris&page=1&include_adult=false

Is it possible to add a sort by desc? Like how I would for a movie?
https://api.themoviedb.org/3/search/person?api_key=#####&language=en-US&sort_by=popularity.desc&query=Chris&page=1&include_adult=false

Thanks in advance
