Behind the Scenes: The Making of a Hit Streaming Show

By: The BitMar Team.

In recent years, streaming services have disrupted the traditional Television landscape, by creating their original programming. These shows have not only attracted large audiences, but also critical acclaim... winning awards, and gaining recognition as some of the best shows on TV.

So, what goes into making a hit streaming show? How do creators, writers, directors, and cast members, collaborate to craft a compelling, and addictive, story? Let us take a look, behind the scenes of a popular streaming show, to find out.

Inspiration, and Writing:

The creative process, for a streaming show, often begins with an idea, or concept, that a writer – or, team of writers – develops into a story. Showrunners, who are responsible for overseeing the creative direction of the show, work closely with writers, to shape the narrative, and to develop the characters.

For example: the Netflix series: "Stranger Things" was created by the Duffer Brothers; who were inspired by their love of '80s sci-fi, and horror films. They worked with a team of writers, to develop the story; which follows a group of kids, in a small town, who encounter supernatural forces.

Production, and Post-Production:

Once the story has been written, and approved, the show enters the production phase. This involves: casting actors, designing sets, and filming scenes. Showrunners, and directors, work together to ensure that the creative vision is realized on screen.

During filming, actors often work long hours, and spend weeks – or, months – on set. They must stay in character, hit their marks, and deliver their lines, convincingly. It is a challenging, and demanding process, but one that can also be very rewarding.

After filming is complete, the show enters the post-production phase. This involves: editing the footage, adding special effects, and music, as well as fine-tuning the final product. Showrunners, and editors, work together to ensure that the pacing, and tone, of the show are just right.

Innovative Techniques, and Technology:

Streaming shows often push the boundaries of what is possible in Television; using innovative techniques, and technology, to create stunning visuals, and immersive experiences. For example: the Amazon Prime Video series: "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" features elaborate sets, and costumes, that transport viewers back to the 1950s.

The show also uses visual effects, to enhance the scenes—such, as: adding crowds of people to a bustling New York City street. Additionally, the show features long, uninterrupted takes that require precise timing, and coordination, from the actors and crew.


Creating a hit streaming show takes a team of dedicated professionals to work together to bring a story to life. From inspiration and writing, to production and post-production, every step of the process is crucial in crafting a compelling, and addictive show. With the rise of streaming services, we can expect to see even more innovative, and exciting, shows in the years to come.
