A scripted TV series about streaming behemoth Spotify is coming to Netflix. The currently untitled show, based on Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud's book Spotify Untold, will be directed by Per-Olav Sørensen (Quicksand, Nobel) with Berna Levin serving as executive producer.

“The story of how a small band of Swedish tech industry insiders transformed music – how we listen to it and how it’s made – is truly a tale for our time," Levin said in a press release. "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."

“I am excited to bring the story of Sweden based Spotify to life on the screen," Sørensen added. "It is an ongoing fairytale in modern history about how Swedish wiz kids changed the music industry forever. The story is truly exciting and challenging. Challenging because the Spotify story has not ended yet — it is still running with high speed and will probably change while we work on the project."

There is no release date at the moment, so stay tuned for updates.
