Netflix‘s new docuseries is basically to teach its loyal subscribers how not to watch Netflix. The streaming giant has teamed up with the popular meditation app Headspace for a new animated series entitled Headspace Guide to Sleep, set to explain to audiences how to switch off.
The Hollywood Reporter states that the series reveals “the science behind a healthy night’s sleep and provides tips on how to get the best sleep you’ve ever had. Each 15-minute episode explores a different aspect of our relationship with sleep — such as insomnia, stress, our phones and even sleeping pills — followed by a guided wind-down designed to help you on your journey to better sleep.”
In an ironic twist of fate, the media company which introduced the world and perpetuated the habit of binge-watching is now producing content that teaches audiences exactly the opposite. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings once declared that its biggest competitor was in fact, sleep, “You get a show or a movie you’re really dying to watch, and you end up staying up late at night, so we actually compete with sleep. And we’re winning.”
The new Netflix show is a follow-up of Headspace Guide to Meditation. Headspace Guide to Sleep hits the streaming service on April 28.
