Need some help with planning a custom post type feature

Hi there,

First of all.. sorry if my englisch is not correct. I need some help with the planning of a feature which i am trying to make.

For an affiliate website, which has an focus on tv-series i need to build the following:

  • A custom post type named series.
  • This custom post type needs to have different categories.
  • Each categorie needs to have an archive page with al the tv-series from within that categorie.

No problems at this point. But what my customer wants to have the following:

  • My customer wants to have the ability to "check" tv-series as "sticky/featured" so they will end up @ the top of each archive-page.

As n example to clarify: The website wil have around 30 different categories.. Each categorie will have his own page.. and each page/categorie needs to have the top 5 series (sticky).

I hope i explained it well, so you guys can help me. I am not asking for code help.. this i can achieve myself.. but i need help with the planning of this.. What do you guys think is best way to achieve this?
