Strangers (2018) aka White Dragon

Postby hgkkcnvjd » Tue Feb 12, 2019 9:53 pm

Initially an ITV commission in the UK, it had a working title of 'White Dragon', but they couldn't get that name for the UK apparently (?) so titled it 'Strangers' there, but where it runs elsewhere in English-speaking countries (US on Amazon, AUS on BBC Australia, etc.) it seems to be called 'White Dragon', the title IMDB gives it.

What do you do in a situation like this?

We would use the country of origin's name as the primary title of the series and enter the other alternates as an Alias in the database. Unfortunately the Alias system is currently unavailable for modification... so we are kind of stuck with just "Strangers." And if there's already a series called "Strangers," you need to add the year of broadcast in parentheses.
