Description

This template should be used for the parameter |based on= of templates such as {{Infobox film}}, {{Infobox television}}, {{Infobox opera}} and {{Infobox musical composition}}. It creates an automatic line break between the original work title and its creator(s). Separate multiple writers with line breaks (<br />). See Manual of Style (titles) for the proper way of displaying the title of the source material. Do not use this field where the source material is ambiguous, i.e. in cases of films that are not clearly or officially based on one original work.

Usage
