The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – AKA Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signed a production deal with global streaming giant Netflix.
Netflix said in an email statement on Wednesday the royal duo will produce a wide range of work with Netflix, including scripted and documentary series, documentary films, scripted features and children’s programming.
Harry and Meghan said they will focus on programs, stories and issues “that resonate with them personally”. A nature documentary series and animated series about inspiring women is already underway.
“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in the statement.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”
Harry and Meghan aren’t the first star-studded names Netflix has signed. Recently, Netflix made a pact with Barack and Michelle Obama for a similar content slate, encompassing a wide range of shows and movies.
Prior to marrying Prince Harry and stepping into royal duties (then stepping out of those Royal duties last year), Meghan was a successful actress, namely known for her role in Suits. However, Netflix said Meghan does not plan to return to acting.
