With over 250 originals and thousands of hours of content, Spotify has one of the largest libraries of unattached IP that exists in the world today and that library is being added to daily. This treasure trove of content plus the acceleration of new voices and stories provided an enormous opportunity to transform these addictive stories and IP into content for the screen.”
