Netflix Can’t Publicly Interfere with the Content Made by the Sussexes, Insider Says
A few months after saying goodbye to royal life, the Sussex pair landed a multi-million dollar deal with the streaming giant Netflix. A year and a few months later, they have announced two projects they’re separately working on for the streamer.
One of them is a documentary that will cover the Invictus Games and go behind-the-scenes to capture the lives of the veterans taking part in the sports. The second project, announced by Meghan’s team, is an animated series that will follow the adventures of a 12-year-old girl named Pearl.
Media Expert Claims Netflix Can’t Get Into a “Public Spat” with the Sussexes
According to a media expert, Harry and Meghan have “more than the usual authority” over the content they produce for Netflix.
Chatting with Express.co.uk, media lawyer Barry Chase revealed that it would be a detriment for Netflix to “get into a public spat over an attempt to control the content” that the royal couple produces.
Mr. Chase said: “They will want to protect the substance of whatever message they want to convey.
“That’s a little different from what an entertainment company is usually concerned about.
“I would think that Harry and Meghan would have obtained more than the usual authority to control the actual content of what they’re producing because the message would have been so important to them.
“And they would have had the leverage to bargain for more content control than would usually be the case in productions.”
According to Barry Chase, Netflix normally does not grant that amount of creative control to the people they’re working with.
He continued: “Generally, if you want to produce for Netflix, Netflix holds the final content control hand – and they might formally with Harry and Meghan as well – but they certainly don’t want to end up with a black eye.”
