Meghan Markle is creating and executive producing a new animated series for Netflix, titled “Pearl,” that will focus on a 12-year-old girl’s “heroic adventures.”
The couple signed a deal to produce content for the popular streaming platform after quitting their royal duties in Britain.
The animated series, the first to be announced by Archewell Productions, the company the couple formed together and which is named after their son Archie, is to be called "Pearl."
"Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life's daily challenges," Meghan said in a statement.
"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."
Last year, the couple announced the company would create a documentary series about the Invictus Games for wounded servicemen and women, which Prince Harry has long championed.
Meghan will be an executive producer for "Pearl," alongside several others including Carolyn Soper, director of the animated movie "Sherlock Gnomes" and Liz Garbus, a US filmmaker whose work includes "Lost Girls," as well as David Furnish, a Canadian filmmaker and husband of Elton John.
Earlier this year, Meghan published an illustrated children's book called "The Bench," which started out as a Father's Day poem for Prince Harry.
Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, have signed a multiyear deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children's programming for the streamer.
The director of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix docuseries “Harry and Meghan” has claimed that Buckingham Palace attempted to “discredit” the show after it aired.
This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year," said Harry in a statement.
While ‘Jawan’ clinched the 1st spot, ‘Pathaan’ comfortably landed the second spot followed by his longtime friend and frequent collaborator Karan Johar’s first directorial in 7 years, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’.
According to the book's promotional blurb, 'Welcome To Paradise' offers "rich narratives that explore the depth of loneliness, heartbreak and deception".
