Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and wife of British Prince Harry, will produce for Netflix an animated adventure series about a 12-year-old girl inspired by historical female characters, her production company said on Wednesday.
The couple signed a deal to produce content for a popular streaming platform after completing their royal duties in the UK.
The animated series was first announced by Archewell Productions, a company the couple co-founded and named after their son Archewell, called “Pearl.”
“Like many girls of her age, our hero Pearl is on a journey to find himself trying to overcome the challenges of everyday life,” Megan said in a statement.
“I am excited that Archewell Productions, partnering with the powerful Netflix platform and with these incredible producers, will bring together this new animated series that celebrates exceptional women throughout history.”
Last year, the couple announced that the company would create a documentary series about the Invictus Games for Wounded Soldiers and Women that Prince Harry has long advocated.
Megan will become the lead producer on “Pearl,” among others, including “Sherlock Gnomes” animated film director Caroline Soper and American filmmaker Liz Garbus, whose work includes “Lost Girls” and David Furnish. Canadian director and husband of Elton John.
Earlier this year, Meghan published the picture book “The Bench,” which began as a Father’s Day poem for Prince Harry.
