Hi, Arjay Martin.

"How to submit countries for titles:
  • IMDb defines the country of a title as the place or places where the production companies for that title are based, and therefore where the financing originated. This means, for example, even if a title is shot on location in France, if its production companies are all based in the USA, we record the country as USA.
  • If a title is a multi-country production, the order the countries are entered into the addition/update forms is significant and will be reflected in the display order within IMDb."
Australia is now for COACA News on the series level. 
If you are going to add more countries for the series, it should be done on the series level and not per episode.

Or episodes for that series are produced by different companies?

PS: it's clear now to be a technical issue. Please wait for official announcement on this problem.

Same problem with me. All the episode I'm trying to add are rejected by the base because I cannot choose the country

Hello, thank you for your reply.  The problem is with adding episodes... that the drop down for country does not work, so I cannot add episodes.

Arjay,

It appears there's a system-wide issue. At least one recent post mentioned the same problem.

Please wait for a response from an IMDb representative on this matter.

Thanks for the report.
