That's a Wrap

2016 was a massive year for TMDb. Looking back at everything we accomplished this year and it's hard to believe it. The new website and brand have been a huge success, we outpaced our 2015 edits and we continue to be a premiere source for data, images and the entertainment industry as a whole. Here's a quick recap of the best and worst of the year. I had a lot of fun building this, so enjoy!

Thank You!

I would like to extend my personal thanks for making 2016 a great year at TMDb. I've been doing this for 8 years now and I think 2016 has been the most memorable yet.

Comparing where we are at today to a year ago, I barely recognize TMDb and that's a really awesome feeling. There's so many great things that I launched, improved and changed this year that this is easily the most proud I've ever felt about the work that's sitting in front of you. It's not always easy doing this as a one man project but hearing all of the amazing feedback when I launched v4 and the continued love and support all year long has got to make this one of the best jobs in the world. There's no way I'd rather be doing anything else.

Here's to a fantastic 2017! Have a happy and safe new year,

Travis Bell
