Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle, who stepped back from senior royal duties in March, recently reached a multiyear deal with Netflix to produce documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming, according to The New York Times.
Duke and Duchess of Sussex, appearing in a documentary about the Paralympic Games in Rising Phoenix, said in a statement:
“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.”
The couple, who seeks financial independence after ditching royal duties, continued:
“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.”
According to the entertainment industry, this deal could be worth $150 million.
Once the news spread, Netflix’s chief content officer and co-chief executive, Ted Sarandos used the following statement, and confirmed 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.”
