Netflix series Spotify


Get ready everyone because the biggest crossover is yet to happen! Apparently, Netflix will be making a series about the rise of the music-streaming app, Spotify! Find out more here:

Following the 2010 film ‘The Social Network’ about the rise of Facebook, Netflix plans to create its own with an original featuring the music-streaming app, Spotify, which they announced on Wednesday.

This Netflix Original will be produced by Yellow Bird UK and will focus on the “hard convictions, unrelenting will, access, and big dreams” of the young Swedish tech entrepreneur, Daniel Ek, and his partner Martin Lorentzon.

Changing the industry

It will be directed by Per-Olav Sørensen (‘Quicksand’, ‘Home for Christmas’, and ‘Nobel’) and according to him: “I am excited to bring the story of Sweden based Spotify to life on the screen. 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.”

We will see how they changed the music industry by offering a platform wherein people can freely and most importantly–legally listen to their favorite artists around the world.

We know y’all are excited about this, however, Netflix hasn’t revealed further details about this project or what the title will be. But one thing to look out for is that former Apple CEO Steve Jobs is said to make an appearance as one of Spotify’s adversary. In case you didn’t know, Spotify filed a complaint against Apple in the European Commission earlier this year. Talk about a star-studded cast!

As of now, we still don’t know when the movie will be out but until then you can head right onto our website and check out the latest films available on Netflix!

U Do U is a platform and community for youthful and vibrant Filipinos to express themselves and their interests in entertainment, lifestyle, music, gaming and dance. You Do You” is a phrase that we started using in AfterParty as we grind towards creating original and out-of-the-box ideas and content for the rest of the world to see. We do what we do to change the game in how the Filipino local scene is perceived in both the local and global arena – that we have a vibrant local music scene and, top it all off, we have worldclass artists that are worthy of a global audience.
