Meghan Markle: Duchess of Sussex overtakes Netflix Black Lives Matter movie Royal | news


Last week the streaming giant announced a major new deal with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The pair have agreed to produce films, documentaries and children’s shows for the company.

Meghan and Harry’s Netflix deal is estimated to be $ 150 million (£ 120 million dollars) until the exact figure has been released.

According to the Daily Mirror, Meghan is keen to produce a film about Patrice Colors, one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter.

The lead activist has reportedly “highly motivated” the Duchess.

He launched Black Lives Matter in 2013 with Opal Tomaty and Alicia Garza.

A source said: “Meghan has been blown away by Patrice with incredible work. She thinks her story needs to be told – and she would love to make it. ”

Ms Colors has previously said she would refuse to meet with President Trump, whom she has allegedly described as a “symbol of evil”.

The Black Lives Matter movement saw an increase in support after the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, while he was detained by police in Minneapolis.

In response, massive protests erupted across the United States, and even outside it, demanded social and racial justice.

He said: “Harry and Meghan have inspired millions around the world with their authenticity, optimism and leadership.

“We are incredibly proud that they have chosen Netflix as their creative home – and are excited to tell stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.”

Back in January the Duke and Duchess created a global sensation by announcing that they planned to step down as senior members of the royal family.

Instead, the couple promised to be financially independent and said they would split their time between North America and Britain.

After a brief stay in Canada, he moved to Meghan’s home state of California, shortly before the coronovirus lockdown began.

Recently he bought a new £ 11.2 billion property north of Los Angeles.

The luxury property is complete with swimming pool, tennis courts and children’s hut.

Contracting Netflix, the Duke and Duchess stated: “Our lives, independent of each other and as a couple, allow us to understand the power of the human soul to require courage, flexibility and connection.

“Through our work with various communities and their environments, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope, to shed light on people and causes around the world.

“As new parents, creating inspirational family programming is also important to us, because empowering is the story through a true and trustworthy lens.”
