Meghan Markle blow as Netflix 'drops duchesses new animated series'

NewsMeghan Markle blow as Netflix 'drops duchesses new animated series'


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their deal with Netflix in September 2020 but they are yet to produce any content for the platform.

While the exact details of the deal have not been disclosed several reports have suggested it could be worth in excess of $100m (£72m).

Announcing their deal with Netflix, the couple said they wanted to create content that “informs but also gives hope”.

One of the projects announced by the pair was an animated series called Pearl which focuses on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who finds inspiration in a variety of influential women throughout history.

At the time of announcing the project, Meghan said of the show: “Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges.”

However, the project has been axed by the streaming giant while it’s still in its development stage. 

Netflix also scrapped two other kids animated series last week that were in production — Dino Daycare from Ada Twist, Scientist executive producer Chris Nee, and the South Asian-inspired adventure Boons and Curses.
