GridScreen Callout Box - "eps"

Looking at the GridScreen for the Netflix channel, the TV shows listed display the number of episodes in the callout box - "100 eps". I have no problem displaying the duration for my clips - "1h 43m" - in the callout box by using the "Length" metadata parameter, but I can't figure out how to replace this verbiage with the "eps" verbiage. I've looked through the documentation and browsed this forum, but haven't been able to find anything that describes how to do this. Thoughts?

Re: GridScreen Callout Box - "eps"

The "ReleaseDate" metadata property is a string, so you can add any text you want to it. In the Instant Watch Browser, I just append the episode count to the release year to get the same effect.
