Hi,

So I wanted to make a formal request to get a project started to revamp the series Frontline for PBS.

https://www.thetvdb.com/series/frontline

I know this same issue was encountered for other PBS series like NOVA where they first went by years for seasons and then switched to official season numbers afterwards and it was changed to reflect that. It seems Frontline on the TVDB page is still utilizing this format even though sites like TV guide utilize the season format. See here

Is there anyway to start getting it to reflect the season numbers instead of year?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the PBS site using years? Not seasons? Our guidelines will typically favor the network site's listing rather than TV Guide (which is not a preferred source of truth).
