Netflix is giving fans a taste of the shows coming to the streaming platform.
Netflix held its ‘TUDUM: A Netflix Global Fan Event‘ on Saturday morning, allowing viewers a three-hour peek at exclusive content, reviewing over 100 shows, movies, documentaries, and specials.
The global fan convention featured dozens of recognizable actors from Netflix properties, including hit series like Stranger Things, Money Heist, and Bridgerton. Co-hosted by Lilly Singh, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, and Nicolo Coughlin, the event also announced premiere dates and series renewal announcements, hosted cast and creator panels, and unveiled exclusive behind-the-scenes content.
The fan event features a slew of international projects alongside the big-name productions. Netflix took greater interest in local-language television and film programming, according to producers in the industry, with some productions becoming sensations both in the US and abroad.
Netflix has made major strides in a rapidly expanding streaming space, growing to 209 million paid subscribers globally as of June, and logging 41% of streaming audiences. It has fueled a competitive streaming war over the past few years with platforms like HBO Max, Disney +, and Amazon Prime Video.
TUDUM, named after the opening sound on the Netflix platform, was first held in-person in Sao Paolo, Brazil, in January 2020. A second online event was held later that year, but this event marks the first-ever global edition of the streaming convention. Many fan conventions went remote this past year due to the coronavirus pandemic, from streaming and entertainment to gaming to streetwear.
