Netflix is always on the lookout for talent, content and the chance of a great deal. The streaming channel recently signed a particularly good deal with Archewell Productions. Moreover, when they teamed up with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it certainly hit the global headlines. Let’s have a look at each project coming to the streaming channel relating to Archewell, Harry and Meghan.
Archewell Productions deal with Netflix
The deal with Netflix was first announced in September 2020, when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed up their newly formed production company, Archewell Productions. Reportedly, Harry and Meghan got $100 million for the Netflix deal.
Harry and Meghan have experienced a couple of tumultuous years after leaving the Royal Family and moving to America. While the couple yearned to get out of the royal spotlight, they have certainly never left the headlines.
Archewell’s website states that the organization “will utilize the power of storytelling to embrace our shared humanity and duty to truth through a compassionate lens.” Of course, Archewell also has other projects outside of their deal with the streaming channel.
So, what projects are coming up on Netflix from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Archewell Productions? Let’s have a look.
Heart of Invictus – Netflix docu-series
Heart of Invictus was first announced in April 2021 and will be the first project to come from the new deal. Prince Harry was one of the founders of the Invictus Games when they launched in 2014. Moreover, the event is similar to the Olympics but is for wounded service personnel.
The new documentary series will follow the athletes’ training for the games to be held in The Hague, Netherlands in 2022.
Pearl – Animated Series
Pearl is an animated Netflix series that will follow the life of a 12-year-girl, enjoying heroic adventures, inspired by history’s most influential women. The series is helmed by Amanda Rynda (DC Super Hero Girls, The Loud House).
The mother of two made a statement about the new Netflix animated series from Archewell Productions. She said that, like many girls her age, “our heroine Pearl” is on a journey of self-discovery. Pearl is trying to overcome life’s daily challenges.
Meghan was thrilled at the time that they had partnered with Netflix for the new series. Moreover, she noted that the series “celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.”
Rumored Kate Middleton docu on Netflix?
In around mid-August 2021, it was reported that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are collaborating on a Netflix project. As there are tensions between Prince Harry and his brother, William, it is hard to imagine this new project.
According to What’s on Netflix, if it does go ahead, the documentary will “spotlight Kate’s charity work and the huge impact she’s made with her philanthropy.”
