Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appear to be in trouble after being fired from Spotify, as their Netflix boss also puts increasing pressure on the couple to salvage the multimillion-dollar deal.
A source close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will do everything they can to salvage the deal and launch some new shows in the future.
The source added: “Harry and Meghan’s team are also working hard to secure a huge deal for the couple to deal with a possible future financial crisis as the streaming service also asks the couple to produce more shows.”
According to reports, Netflix has told the Sussexes that they must produce new shows if they want their £40 million ($51 million) in unpaid fees.
The parents of two who produced last year’s top-rated documentary, “Harry and Meghan,” have reportedly been paid half of their £81 million ($103 million).
There is also speculation that the couple will launch more attacks on the palace to secure a deal and reveal some of the more shocking details of their royal lives.
If they don’t come up with the goods, their deal with the streaming service could be over. The deal is reportedly under review, which is normal for a deal of this size.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Harry and Meghan’s Hollywood foray “looks like a flop” with “more shows canceled and rejected than produced.” There’s “Graveyard,” a project that never came to light, including the canceled children’s animated show “Pearl,” which was canceled by Netflix, “and at least two TV ideas that the streaming service has rejected in the past year.”
It was also claimed that some top brass were less friendly. It feels like the lemon has been squeezed enough. The big money that Harry and Meghan signed is no longer there.
