Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set their sights on the broadcast world. The royal couple signed a deal with Netflix, according to Variety’s report.

Within the scope of their new, multi-year agreement on Netflix, the couple will produce documentaries, feature films, television programs with scripts and children’s series.
Meghan and Harry said, “Our lives, both independent of each other and as a couple, have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: the need for courage, resistance, and connection. Our point will be to create content that gives information but also gives hope. ” said.
The couple will focus on creating a wide variety of TV series about stories and topics that are close to their hearts, as the newly established nonprofit Archewell has adopted. Many projects are already in development, including a nature documentary series and an animated series focusing on inspiring women. The couple went on to say, “As new parents, it’s also important for us to do inspiring family programming and deliver powerful storytelling from an accurate and relatable perspective. ” said.

Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced plans to retreat and become financially independent as senior members of the royal family.
