The latest investment into the EDM-boom is now what is being called a TV-Drama. “Set in the sexy, nonstop world of Miami’s electronic dance music scene, The Drop centers on a DJ teetering on the edge of ruin who finds hope (and more) in a gifted protégé who is female and African-American, both rarities in the EDM world”.
The EDM scene has always been brought into media, however its latest attempt, “We Are Your Friends” with Zac Efron, is considered one of cinema’s biggest opening failures. This one however, under the CBS network, has potential.
More importantly, Steve Angello is involved in the production, though his role is not confirmed, it could be assumed he will be there in an advisory role. Few EDM DJs have as much experience and knowledge as Angello, and thus it certainly is a great decision having him involved.
