La Casa de Papel Debate: How can we explain the show’s success?

A Dali mask, red coveralls, and names of cities have little meaning independently. Combined, these elements in the internationally acclaimed Netflix Series La Casa de Papel transformed into symbols. This binge worthy series became a global phenomenon, but it did not start out that way.

What was it that made this Series viral? Was it the power of storytelling, or was it the data science behind Netflix’s algorithms?

This will be the final session of a series of workshops led by professors Brian Hallett and Josep Curto which will focus on the virality of La Casa de Papel. They will debate which element, data-driven or story-driven, was more relevant to the series´ success. 

Don´t miss this opportunity to break into the knowledge that La Casa de Papel has to offer.
