Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s lucrative Netflix deal is reportedly still going strong, with a number of projects in the pipeline.
Since signing a major deal with Netflix in 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s business venture with the streaming giant has been under a lot of scrutiny. The last few projects to come out of the partnership include a December 2022 bombshell documentary on the couple’s lives named Meghan & Harry, the Heart of Invictus documentary series from last year, and Live To Lead, an interview series featuring Greta Thunberg, Gloria Steinem, and more. Now, a Netflix executive has revealed more details about the future of the partnership, hinting at all the various works that are currently in development.
Speaking to Hello! magazine at the Next on Netflix event recently, the platform’s chief content officer Bela Bajaria said, “They have a couple of unscripted things they’re working on with Brandon [Reigg].” She continued, “And they actually have like a bunch of development. They have a movie in development, a [scripted] series that they’re working on. So all very early development, with a movie, a TV show, and a couple of unscripted shows. But yeah, the movie’s great.”
While Bejaria did not disclose what exactly the projects are, one of them could potentially be an adaptation of Carley Fortune’s Meet Me At The Lake novel, the rights to which were acquired by Markle and Prince Harry. “I’m so thrilled about working with Netflix and Archewell to bring Meet Me at the Lake to the screen,” she said in a statement at the time. “Will and Fern’s love story is dear to my heart, and I can’t imagine a more perfect partnership.”
Alongside Netflix, a deal with Spotify was also one of the couple’s many ventures that followed them stepping down as senior members of the royal family in 2020. While the partnership with the audio platform came to an end in June 2023 after one season of Markle’s Archetypes podcast, it’s safe to say that the couple’s Archewell Productions will not be parting ways with Netflix any time soon.”We value our partnership with Archewell Productions,” a Netflix spokesperson told People in June following the Spotify news. “Harry & Meghan was Netflix’s biggest documentary debut ever, and we’ll continue to work together on a number of projects, including the upcoming documentary series Heart of Invictus.”
