Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are quietly shopping a top secret project to network executives as they settle into their new life in Hollywood, a new report claims.
Sources tell Variety that the former royal couple began pitching their idea to ‘numerous’ media companies back in June, around the time that they purchased a sprawling estate in Santa Barbara.
Celebrity couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly gearing up for a Hollywood project, according to Variety.
The couple had shifted to California earlier this year and is now sharing an idea for a project in Hollywood. Although the concept behind their pitch is currently unknown, sources confirmed that the two had meetings in June with various networks. Among these was NBC Universal, where a meeting was set with top executives including Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBC Universal Content Studios, who knew Markle since her days in Suits.
It is not known if the pitch that Harry and Meghan made with the studio bosses is for a scripted or unscripted TV series, or something else. But the couple would like to work as joint producers on the project. A source close to Markle also told the outlet that the former royalty had absolutely no plans to act, therefore, she will not be acting in the pitched project.
A friend of Meghan’s told Variety that she has no intention of acting in her project with Harry or in any other ventures.
Rumors of Harry and Meghan seeking to gain a foothold in Hollywood have run rampant ever since the couple announced their plans to quit as senior royals, seek financial independence and move to North America in January.
Very few details are known about the project, including the concept behind it and whether it would be a TV series or some other format. However, one source with knowledge of the idea said Harry and Meghan intend to serve as joint producers on the venture should it get picked up.
