Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, are bringing a new animated series to Netflix. “Pearl”, created by Markle, is described as “a family-focused animated series that revolves around the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who is inspired by influential women in history.” The series is currently in development with Markle set to executive produce alongside David Furnish (Rocketman), Carolyn Soper (Tangled) and Emmy-winning filmmakers Liz Garbus (I’ll Be Gone in the Dark) and Dan Cogan (Icarus). Amanda Rynda (The Loud House) is on board as showrunner and Executive Producer.
The couple create Archewell in April 2020 and have an overall deal with Netflix for producing new content for the streaming service.
Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges. I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix, and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history. David Furnish and I have been eager to bring this special series to light, and I am delighted we are able to announce it today.
