Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, said in a statement that the streaming company is "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". Congrats on the new gig!
After announcing their intention to part ways with the royal family earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have started their own production company and inked a deal with Netflix.
In May 2018, it was announced the Obamas had entered into a multi-year deal to "produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features".
Harry and Meghan, now Hollywood producers, will be paid to commission feature films, scripted shows, documentaries, docu-series, and children’s programming for the streaming giant.
Back in January (which feels like three decades ago), Harry and Meghan announced they’d be consciously uncoupling from the family firm and planned to "make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution".
