A streaming giant will tell another one. Netflix announced the realization of a original series up Spotify: will tell the rise of the platform, from the foundation in Sweden in the distant 2006 by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon to the leadership maintained today in the sector despite a competition that certainly is not to watch.
From Netflix a series on Spotify
No details on the script have emerged, but rather than a real episodic documentary it should be at least a partial interpretation of the facts, considering that the production is in the hands of the British Yellow Bird UK already working on such content. The direction will be entrusted to the Swedish Per-Olav Sørensen (Quicksand), while in the role of executive producer there will be Berna Levin (Young Wallander, Hidden, Millennium: the one that does not kill).
The script will be inspired by Spotify Untold by journalists Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud, a book that tells the group's rise to the point of influencing the dynamics that regulate the record market globally, not without obstacles and difficulties.
According to early information leaked in the cast of actors there will also be someone called to interpret Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple, as a competitor in the company's growth path. In this regard we recall that between the two realities does not run good blood: in addition to being a competitor in the area of streaming music, the behavior of the bitten apple ended up under the magnifying lens of the European Commission following the complaints made by Spotify at the beginning of this year.
Returning to the series, at the moment it is not given to know when it will be transmitted in streaming. The impression is that the wait will not be short. More details on the project should come within the next few months.
