Creating a Special

Editors perform this task.

As shown in broadcast hierarchy of content types, a special is a video asset that is not associated with a season, but is typically a one-off production of a show. You can set one or more video files on a special, premier and last-aired dates, and a preview image. The video can be full-length or a preview clip. Specials support the programming of companion content.
