The series is to be modeled after the 2010 film ”The Social Network” and based on the book published this year, ”Spotify Untold,” which was written by business journalists Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud.
The series will go in-depth into how Swedish tech entrepreneur Daniel Ek and his business partner Martin Lorentzon came into the music industry with a free, legal music streaming service in 2006.
The series will be produced by Yellow Bird UK, a Banijay Group company that is also the production company behind the Netflix crime series “Young Wallander.”
The series that has yet to be named will be directed by Per-Olav Sorensen, while Berna Levin will executive produce with Luke Franklin as a producer.
“Not only is this a story about the way all our lives have changed in the last decade, it’s about the battle for cultural and financial influence in a globalized, digitized world,” executive producer Levin said.
A release date has not been released yet for the series.
