According to Page Six, Netflix is working with the parents-of-two for "an at-home with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex-style" docuseries! While the streaming service was hoping to debut the show this fall to go along with Harry's memoir, "the timing is still being discussed, things are up in the air," explained a source.
The duo signed a multimillion-dollar deal with Netflix in 2020 and have already had cameras follow them around for Harry's Heart of Invictus, a documentary that chronicles the Invictus Games, the competition he founded for wounded army personnel.
The outlet claimed the cameras were also along for the ride when the Suits alum, 40, and Harry, 37, visited New York City last year, in addition to filming footage of them inside their California home.
It's yet to be revealed whether their kids — Archie, 3, and Lilibet, who turns 1 in June — will appear, but the content is sure to spur headlines, as one insider quipped, "I think it’s fair to say that Netflix is getting its pound of flesh."
The news comes just a few weeks after it was revealed that the streamer scrapped Pearl, the animated children's series Meghan was developing.
"Netflix has quietly dropped Pearl, the working title of an animated series that was created by Meghan Markle through Archewell Productions, the shingle the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry set up at Netflix in fall of 2020 to create scripted series, docuseries, documentaries, features and children’s programming," Deadline reported in early May, noting that the company made several other cutbacks and layoffs. "Pearl was to be Archewell’s first animated series."
The axed show was set to follow a 12-year-old girl who learns how to step into her own power.
"Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges," Meghan shared last year. "I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history. David Furnish and I have been eager to bring this special series to light, and I am delighted we are able to announce it today."
Furnish and the Duchess of Sussex had already made some headway on the show before it got shelved, and he had nothing but kind words to say about the former actress.
"She's a fantastic collaborator, amazing leader," insisted the producer. "And we're just very, very excited to be working with, you know, someone as influential and as supportive as Netflix."
