Edvin Endre will lead the cast of Netflix’s Spotify series.
The untitled drama tells the origins of the Swedish start-up that shook the entire music industry and evolved into becoming one of the world’s leading streaming services.
At the height of piracy, established heavy-hitters were fighting against where the turbulent music industry was heading. The series centres around the young Swedish tech entrepreneur Daniel Ek and his key partners, who founded Spotify and change the way that we listen to music. The limited series will consist of six forty-five minute episodes. The fictional series is inspired by the book Spotify Untold by authors Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud – both business reporters at Swedish Dagens Industri – and will be produced by Yellow Bird UK, a Banijay Group company.
In front of the camera, Edvin Endre (Vikings) stars as Daniel Ek, alongside Ulf Stenberg (Beartown) as Per Sundin, Gizem Erdogan (Love & Anarchy, Caliphate) as Petra Hansson, Joel Lützow (Gåsmamman) as Andreas Ehn and Christian Hillborg (The Last Kingdom) as Martin Lorentzon.
Behind the camera, Per-Olav Sørensen (Quicksand, Home for Christmas and Nobel) is directing, with Christian Spurrier serves as head writer. Production has recently begun and the series will launch globally on Netflix in 2022.
