Description Or Synopsis On Front Page

I can't figure out how to get the series/video description on the front page of the channel (as exampled in Roku's own Getting Started).

Here's what Roku shows on their Getting Started:



What tag do I need to use in my JSON to show the equivalent of "In this Emmy-nominated comedy..."

Previously with the SDK I would just use the <description> tag, but that isn't working for Direct Publisher. 

All I get is the title, year of publication and # of seasons.

If you're using a Json feed file, you should be able to accomplish that with the 'longDescription' field.
FREE Windows desktop software for creating BIF (Trick Play), Direct Publisher (MRSS, JSON), and FireTV feeds @ https://github.com/rrirower. No programming knowledge required.

No...i've got "description", "shortDescription" and "longDescription". Nothing will show on the front page of the channel.
