The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly filming an “At Home” docuseries for Netflix.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan – who have children Archie, three, and 11-month-old Lili – signed a $100 million production deal with the streaming service in 2020 and one of the shows they will be in has now been revealed The Pipeline is a fly-on-the-wall reality show about her life.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, Netflix wants to air the show through the end of the year to tie in with Harry’s forthcoming memoir, but he and his wife prefer a 2023 release date.
A producer told the outlet, “The timing is still being debated, things are up in the air.”
The couple were followed by cameras as they visited the Netherlands for the Invictus games last month, while Netflix was filming a documentary called Heart of Invictus, but it’s said to be overshadowed by the more personal project, which will even include filming at home of the couple in Montecito, California and on their trip to New York last September.
A source noted, “I think it’s fair to say Netflix is getting its pound of meat.”
Netflix declined to comment on the news while representatives for the 37-year-old prince and his wife were unavailable.
The news comes a month after the network announced it had halted development of Pearl, an animated series created by the former Suits actress as part of its cost-cutting efforts.
The 40-year-old Duchess – who gave up royal duties to live in Los Angeles with her husband in 2020 – created the series through the couple’s company Archewell Productions and had described it as a family series centered on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who draws inspiration from a variety of influential women throughout history.
She said at the time: “Like many girls her age, our heroine, Pearl, is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to navigate life’s daily challenges. I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions has partnered with Netflix’s powerful platform and together these incredible producers will bring you this new animated series that celebrates extraordinary women throughout history. [Co-producer] David Furnish and I have been very keen to bring this special series to light and I’m delighted to announce it today.”
Despite their huge production deal with Netflix, the couple has yet to air any content on the platform.
