Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship appeared in the beginning to be a fairy tale love story, but as more time has passed since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s exit from the royal family, they’re increasingly looking like they’re floundering in international waters. This includes their deal with Netflix, which hasn’t progressed just like their Spotify partnership.
According to The Daily Mail, the deal between the Sussexes and Netflix was penned 16 months ago, which is why some are concerned. As it turns out, Netflix is concerned, too, which is why they’ve begun production on the couple’s first project, “Pearl,” as a push to make the duo uphold their contract. To kick things off, the streaming giant took to Instagram to announce a job posting, this time for a production designer for “Pearl.”
The production designer will “help to develop, create and support the aesthetic vision of the executive producer team,” per the advertisement (via Startup.Jobs). The job description describes “Pearl” as a comedy series following “the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who finds inspiration in a variety of influential women throughout history.” The series is noted as being created by Meghan Markle herself.
Not much else is known about the series, but Netflix’s job posting is undoubtedly a push to make the Sussexes work. If folks are hired, the pedal will have to be pushed to the metal.
