Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s second Netflix project focuses on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl in an animated series.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell Productions announced Wednesday that the working title pearl is developed for the streaming service. Markle came up with the idea of the family-oriented animated series, which was inspired by a variety of women from history.
Markle will serve as executive producer along with Canadian filmmaker David Furnish, who is the producer rocket Man and Sherlock gnome.
“Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges,” Markle said in a statement. “I’m excited that Archewell Productions, in partnership with the powerful Netflix platform and these incredible producers, is bringing together this new animated series that celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.”
The couple recently signed a content creation contract for Netflix and creates content podcasts for Spotify. The first project with Netflix will focus on the Invictus Games, which offer sick and injured military personnel and veterans an opportunity to compete in sports.
The couple separated their lives from the British royal family and live in California.
