The Lazarus Project

Cecile wrote 15 days ago: 1

Hi

I thought the shows should reflect the original channel/network, not the one who broadcast it first.

But then, I saw that The Lazarus Project has been changed from Sky (original network) to Now; and the dates have been updated to match now's instead of Sky's.

Shouldn't it be changed ?

Sky own Now so it's correct, an alternate list has been added for the broadcast dates.

I didn't knew that.

But shouldn't it be the reverse : marked with Sky's dates and alternate list with Now's ?

Considering it is branded as a Sky original, that make more sense.

It's in all the data policies. Now is owned by Sky, so it's still a sky original irregardless. 

Airdate owner

A show's owner is the entity that commissioned the show. Usually, this is the same entity that airs the show's world premieres: a show commissioned by NBC will premiere on NBC. But occasionally, episodes have their world premiere on an outlet that's completely unrelated to the show's owner.

If a show has a single unambiguous owner throughout its lifetime, the episode airdates should be set to the premiere dates on the owner's TV Network or Web Channel as described above. However, if a show's owner is ambiguous - because it's co-produced by multiple entities - or if the ownership changes throughout its lifetime, the world premiere dates must be used. For example:

Use owner's premiere dates:

The Blacklist (NBC show, occasionally has its world premiere in Canada before shown on NBC)

The Musketeers (BBC show, season 3 premiered in Canada instead of on BBC)

Use world premiere dates:

Deutschland 83 (German show, co-production between Germany and US; premiered in the US)

The Last Kingdom (Season 1 co-production between BBC and BBC America; season 2 co-production between BBC and Netflix)

Black mirror (Season 1 and 2 commissioned by UK's Channel 4; season 3 commissioned by Netflix)

Da Vinci's Daemons (Season 3 premiered on Starz Play instead of the Starz network - they are considered the same owner, so Starz Play wins)

Using the owner's premiere dates should be rare. When in doubt, always use the world premiere dates.
