Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signed a multiyear production deal with Netflix as they start their lives in California after having stepped down from their royal duties in March.
The couple have founded a ‘yet-to-be-named production company’ that will focus on charities and issues that really matter to them. They will be making documentaries, feature films, scripted shows, as well as children’s programmes.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s statement about the signed deal read: “Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.”
They went on to say: “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.”
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.” – They added.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer and co-chief exec, said: “We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.”
Meghan’s first post-Megxit job in showbiz was as a narrator for the Disney Plus docuseries ‘Elephant’, which came out in April. Though the former ‘Suits’ actress has previously made it clear that she has no plans to return to acting.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently bought a $14 million mansion in Santa Barbara, California. This new home is where they plan to settle down and ‘put down lasting roots for themselves and [their] young son Archie’.
