We one co-writer on 1 episode out of 20 episodes in our series. I have given them a co-writer credit on this episode, but on IMDB Pro their credit appears as a 'writer' credit.  They also appear above the series writer in the 'Series Writing Credits'.  We really need to have our writer/director appearing first in the list, and have the other person receive a 'co-writer' credit only.  Is this possible?

All the writing credits appear in the ”main” title page, in the ”Series Writing Credits” section. So it’s not that only ”main” writers appear there.

When it comes to credit order, you should carefully read this guide (scroll down a bit, especially ”Sequence numbers ("Order")):
https://help.imdb.com/article/contrib...#

IMDb staff can comment more on how the (writing) credits eventually appear the ”main” title page, but each episode should be ordered correctly. Totally random example:

Doe, John - - - (screenplay by) - - - 1,1,1
Doe, Jane - - - (story by) - - - 2,1,1

( At the moment, I’m not sure how the ”co-writer” credit should be ordered, when it’s clearly credited with ”co-”. )
