Livity - Netflix Elite

Elite was a Netflix Original with a huge ambition: to become a hit with Gen Z across the globe. The brief was to introduce the characters, create word of mouth on social & build hype so there was an audience ready to watch the show when it dropped.

The fragmentation of media & resulting trend towards multiple niche interests, means it's now incredibly difficult to get mass global attention with Gen Z. Given Elite was a new piece of IP & a Spanish-language series, we faced a monumental challenge.

Elite featured cast from La Casa de Papel. They weren’t global stars, but we used their fandoms to fuel our launch.

We created a world-first interactive story: a party in Madrid where global influencers hung with the Elite cast, broadcasting it on Insta. The catch? The cast stayed in character, creating a FOMO frenzy as our audience speculated about who these personalities were.

Then we dropped our reveal: the launch film party footage & specially shot scenes, showcasing themes from the show. 

As huge global influencers mixed with show characters tagging themselves in a mysterious Madrid location, it sent the audience down an Insta rabbit hole where they followed, shared, & built incredible hype around the show.

We generated 2.3M insta post likes, 17k comments, & it propelled the cast to global stardom - collectively they went from 1.3M to 15M followers.

Most significantly our film had 1.2M views and Elite was watched by an extraordinary 20M households globally in just four weeks.
