The series is yet to have a publicly known title, but it is based on the book Spotify Untold, written by Jonas Leijonhufvud and Sven Carlsson, which was published earlier this year.
According to Pitchfork, the paired synopsis of the show reads as follows:
“At the height of piracy, established heavy-hitters were fighting against where the turbulent music industry was heading. The series centres 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.”
There’s no known release date for the series as of yet.
