"The real focus for them is on being producers and on building a production capacity, so that's the key thing," Hastings clarified. "They've developed a great eye for story, and we'll be working with them on that basis."

The Sussexes revealed their deal with the mega production company last week and hinted at what's to come.

"Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope," they said, adding that they want to inspire a new generation utilizing Netflix's "unprecedented reach" and "share impactful content that unlocks action."
