Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plans for Netflix and their collaboration are reportedly on the back burner, as another director is taking over their upcoming documentaries.
This insight is brought forward in a new piece by royal commentator Daniela Elser. News.com.au
He began by writing, “On paper, it’s almost impossible to find a filmmaker more perfect to helm any TV series than the one Meghan and husband Prince Harry are working on for Netflix.”
“And yet, it has now been reported that the royal couple did in fact have a falling out with Bradley and he was eventually replaced by Oscar nominee Liz Garbus.”
“This revelation is just the latest in an ever-growing list of speed bumps and hiccups that have reportedly marred the Duke and Duchess’ first major Netflix show.”
“It made real sense when the New York Times broke the news on Sept. 2 that the Sussexes had signed a ‘megawatt’ deal with Netflix, whose stock is soaring thanks to the fact That the world had nothing else to do but stay indoors. Use material.”
But “here, quite literally, is the $148 million question: Will it all be worth it? Have the creative visions converged to make streaming gold, or will Netflix just stick with some show about them?” But thinking about setting the moon while planning how to change the world between cycles of matcha lattes? Will it be moving, must-see or self-contained, navel-gazing? In which there will be signs of intellectual pretense?
“Doesn’t all the reported changes, adaptations and disagreements, mention the patience required to wait two years?”
