The Chief Content Officer of Netflix, Ted Sarandos has recently said he would be interested in working with Meghan and Harry looking into the future.
Meghan has had her hand at acting before having starred in many movies and TV shows, her most popular role being Rachel Zane in Suits. Given her background in acting, it is not surprising that Mr. Sarandos at Netflix has expressed an interest in creating a deal between herself and her husband Harry. When asked about a potential deal with the royal couple, Ted Sarandos was reported to say: “Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, sure”.
Harry and Meghan will no longer use their HRH titles as they have decided to step back from royal duties, this news came in early 2020 as the couple decided that they wanted to become financially stable, independently. Harry said he wants to be able to provide a better life for wife Meghan and son Archie. This announcement has been approached in many different ways by the media, with the majority of the general public supporting the couple’s decision to step down.
The potential deal is likely to be of interest after Michelle and Barack Obama signed with Netflix in 2018, and Meghan and Harry will be seen to follow those footsteps. The Obamas multi-year deal is set to include documentary films, documentary series, and features. The chances are if a deal is struck with Harry and Meghan, it will consist of similar features.
Aside from Meghan’s previous work, the actress has already bagged a deal with Disney to do Voiceover work. The work is in exchange for charitable donations to go to a wildlife conservation charity: Elephants Without Borders. Harry has also recently been involved in mental health work, doing a documentary alongside Oprah Winfrey which was produced for Apple TV.
One of Netflix’s most popular series “The Crown”, delves into the Royal Family life starting with a young Queen Elizabeth II and going through the events that shaped the 20th century. It has been reported that the show will be stopping at series 5 and so fans are disappointed to not see the most recent event of Meghan and Harry stepping down from royal duties play out in the Netflix series.
Viewers are hoping to see some sort of Netflix deal signed with Harry and Meghan having supported them through their journey of splitting from the Royal Family. Both Harry and Meghan are invested in good causes and charitable work, so hopefully, this can be included within a potential deal.
