Seasons vs. Series

The EIDR system uses North American English-language naming conventions for its episodic programs: Series – Season – Episode. Other territories may use different names for these same concepts. In particular, what EIDR calls a Series may be known as a Programme or Brand in the UK, while an EIDR Season may be known as a UK Series. Within a broadcast organization, certain EIDR concepts may also be known by other names, such as Flight instead of Season or Event instead of Episode.
