The 6x45 untitled series is inspired by business reporters Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud's 2019 book Spotify Untold.

It’s a story about how strong convictions, unrelenting determination, access and big dreams can help small players challenge the status quo by changing the mode by which we listen to music. The story is penned by a team of writers headed up by Christian Spurrier.
Other key cast members are Ulf Stenberg (as Per Sundin), Gizem Erdogan (as Petra Hansson), Joel Lützow (as Andreas Ehn) and Christian Hillborg (as Martin Lorentzon).
The series, which recently entered production, is being staged by Yellow Bird UK, a Banijay Group company. Netflix will launch it globally next year. The producing team includes producer Eiffel Mattsson, development producer Luke Franklin and executive producer Berna Levin.
