Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially gone Hollywood!
The royal couple have signed a multi-year overall deal with Netflix.
Under the new pact, Harry and Meghan will create scripted and unscripted TV series, documentaries, feature films, and kids’ programming.
Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer at Netflix said:
Harry and Meghan have inspired millions of people all around the world with their authenticity, optimism and leadership.
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.
The duke and duchess of Sussex said:
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. 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. We are pleased to work with Ted and the team at Netflix whose unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will bring to these Netflix streets!
