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 converting Direct Publisher channels to SceneGraph (SDK), for creating BIF (Trick Play) files, Roku (MRSS, JSON) feed files, and FireTV feed files @ GitHub/rrirower.

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