Netflix needs to teach a master class of pulling people in after they’ve pissed them off so bad that they want to turn a cheek and cancel a subscription.
If you’re like me, you’re utterly fascinated with everything that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do. You know that the two aren’t going to do anything but spread goodness. They aren’t going to do anything but try to change the world.
The two have signed a deal with Netflix to produce documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.
“Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection,” the pair said in a statement. “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens. We are pleased to work with Ted and the team at Netflix whose unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.”
I am excited to see what happens and what they make. I have really gotten into documentaries, so I am interested in that.
But more interesting to me are scripted shows. I would love if they made a show about their relationship, but I know that is a longshot. But hey – it would inspire me.
“Harry and Meghan have inspired millions of people all around the world with their authenticity, optimism and leadership,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, said in a statement. “We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.”
