‘No one wants to watch!’ – US columnist tells Meghan Markle and Harry over the production of theirÂ Netflix seriesÂ
In September 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a huge deal with streaming service Netflix worth £109million.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed the deal to make original contents which includes documentaries, children’s programmes as well as scripted shows, and feature films.
While a full list of their plans is yet to be revealed it was announced back in April that Harry was working on a series about the Invictus games.
However, many of their fans can’t wait to finally see the pair’s hard work on screens, but other people including US columnist Maureen Callahan are definitely not as excited after hearing the Netflix announcement.
The columnist brutally hit out at the pair and their ambitions of becoming Netflix mega-stars, writing in the New York Post: “Meghan showed up on ‘America’s Got Talent’ for no discernible reason, and Harry and Meghan just announced that $100-million-dollar deal with Netflix.
“‘Making inspirational family programming,’ they said in a statement, ‘is important to us.’
“Uh-huh. They droned on about ‘the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.
“‘Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.’
“In other words, stuff no one wants to watch.
“Let’s get real: The most buzzed-about doc on Netflix right now is about a South African man who falls in love with an octopus (‘My Octopus Teacher,’ truly a must-see).”
‘Heart of Invictus’ will follow the journeys of individuals who are competing at the games which take place next year at The Hague.
Harry founded Invictus in 2014 after being inspired by the Warrior Games in the US, learning how sport can help both mental and physical health. He is expected to appear on camera during the docuseries and be credited as executive producer.s
