The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed a multi-year deal with Netflix!
The New York Times reported on Wednesday that the royal duo’s unnamed production company will produce documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming exclusively for the streaming giant.
“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,” Meghan and Harry said in a statement. “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.”
They added, “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.”
The report shared that the couple may appear in a few of the documentary-type programs, but Meghan has no plans to make her return to acting.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, also commented on the deal. “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,” Sarandos shared.
After stepping down from their senior royal roles in March, Meghan and Prince Harry moved to Los Angeles with 1-year-old son Archie. They recently bought a home in Santa Barbara, about 95 miles north of L.A.
