Meghan Markle To Produce Animated Adventure Series ‘Pearl’ For Netflix
Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and wife of Britain’s Prince Harry aims at making an animated adventure series for the popular streaming platform ‘Netflix’. It is about a 12-year-old girl who is inspired by historical female figures, stated by her production company on Wednesday.
The Royal couple signed an agreement to produce content for the popular platform after quitting their royal duties in Britain.
The animated series is to be called “Pearl.” and is named after their son Archie. The news was first announced by Archewell Productions, which the couple formed together.
“Just like many girls of her age, our main character ‘Pearl’ is on a journey of self-discovery as she put efforts to overcome life’s daily challenges,” stated Meghan in a statement.
“I’m excited that Archewell Productions, in collaboration with the powerhouse platform of Netflix, along with these incredible producers, will bring you together with this new animated series, which gives honor to history’s extraordinary women.”
Last year, the royal couple announced the creation of a documentary series regarding the Invictus Games for injured servicemen and women, which Prince Harry has promoted for a long time.
Meghan will be working as an executive producer for “Pearl,” along with many others including ‘Carolyn Soper’, animated movie director “Sherlock Gnomes”, Liz Garbus, a US filmmaker who made “Lost Girls,” and ‘David Furnish’, a Canadian filmmaker.
Previously this year, an illustrated children’s book called “The Bench,” was published by Meghan which began as a Father’s Day poem for Prince Harry.
