Meghan Markle's Animated Series on Netflix Has Been
Nobody, not even the Duchess of Sussex, is immune to Netflix's budget cuts.
On Sunday, Deadline reported that Netflix has shelved Meghan Markle's planned animated series "Pearl," which was still in the process.
The project was initially announced in 2021, and it would have been the first animated series produced by Markle and Prince Harry's Archewell Productions, which they founded in collaboration with Netflix.
The show was supposed to follow a 12-year-old girl who was inspired by the stories of notable women throughout history.
When "Pearl" was unveiled last summer, Markle issued a statement expressing her and executive producer David Furnish's excitement for audiences to witness the show.
According to Deadline, Netflix's decision to cancel the series appears to be influenced in part by the company's recent stock slide, which has been linked to a loss of customers.
Despite the fact that "Pearl" will not be released, the streamer's collaboration with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue.
According to the official website, the royal couple founded Archwell Productions with the intention of creating programming that "informs, elevates, and inspires."
