It’s 2019. We all know Spotify as the leader in music streaming that it is, but how did it get there? Much like Facebook had The Social Network, Spotify will be getting its own scripted series on Netflix about the evolution of the platform.
This will not be a documentary, and the as-yet-titled show is inspired by the book Spotify Untold. The synopsis reads:
“At the height of piracy, established heavy-hitters were fighting against where the turbulent music industry was heading. The series centers around young Swedish tech entrepreneur, Daniel Ek, and his partner Martin Lorentzon, who revolutionized a whole industry by offering free and legal streamed music around the world. It is a story about how hard convictions, unrelenting will, access and big dreams can help small players challenge the status quo by evolving the way we can all listen to music.”
The series will be directed by Per-Olav Sørensen. No release date has been announced.
