Meghan and Harry will be ‘focused,’ and they will want to avoid ‘embarrassment,’ when it comes to Netflix shows.
An analyst has analyzed MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry’s growth as Netflix TV creators.
In early September of last year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they had inked a multi-year partnership with Netflix. The Duke and Duchess have yet to share any content almost a year later.
They did, however, reveal that their production firm, Archewell Productions, is now working on two new series, Pearl and Heart of Invictus.
While some royal watchers have chastised the Sussexes for taking months to release any content, brand and reputation management expert Eric Schiffer says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are likely working “maniacally” behind the scenes to create something worthwhile.
“There are rumors that they aim to construct something of quality,” said the head of Reputation Management Consultants to This website.
“It’s not incredibly unusual, especially given Covid and the productions being shut down and the likelihood that they are maniacally focused on wanting to put out something that is not going to embarrass them,” he said when asked if a 12-month wait between a contract and the release of a Netflix product is normal in the industry.
Meghan and Harry appointed Oscar-nominated producer Ben Browning as head of content for their audio and video production companies seven months after announcing that the focus of their Netflix relationship will be on generating “material that informs but also gives hope.”
A few weeks later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed on their website, Archewell, that they were creating Heart of Invictus, a multi-episode documentary focusing on a group of Invictus Games athletes from around the world in the lead-up to the competition in The Hague next year.
In mid-July, it was announced that Archewell Productions is working on Pearl, its first animated series for Netflix.
Meghan will serve as an executive producer on this show, which will follow the exploits of a young girl who is inspired by powerful women throughout history.
“Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she struggles to overcome life’s daily challenges,” the Duchess said of the new show.
“I’m ecstatic that Archewell Productions, in collaboration with Netflix’s powerhouse platform and these outstanding producers, will bring you this new animated series that honors extraordinary women throughout history.
