Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Sign Netflix Deal
September 3, 2020
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signed a multi-year, exclusive deal with streaming service Netflix, according to Reuters. The value of the deal is not known, but the couple will be producing shows and films from scripted content to kids' shows. “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in a statement on Wednesday. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.” A few months ago, the couple relocated to Califronia with their toddler Archie after stepping back from the royal family's dealings in Britain. The Netflix deal will help them step back from the royal family's money as well. Although they have no experience in producing, they already have projects in development. One is an animated series that celebrates women, and another is a nature documentary series. The couple also plans to celebrate diversity on an off screen. “We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement.
