Re: sysnopsis text

Using one of the "flat-episodic" list styles will display the "Description" meta-data on the poster screen. That may get you closer to what you're looking for.

Re: sysnopsis text

Try a content type of "episode" and see if that works better for you.

Try SetDescriptionStyle("generic"). I'm not sure what else is will affect, though.
