Netflix is ​​removing Meghan Markle’s animated series Pearl from its upcoming productions list

Netflix has decided not to continue development of Meghan Markle’s animated series pearlciting budget constraints.

The US streamer last month reported a drop in subscriber numbers for the first time in its decade-long history. The company also warned shareholders that it expects to lose two million customers as people cancel their Netflix subscriptions in the wake of the services boom sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, Netflix stock fell 25 percent — erasing over $40 billion from its market value overnight.

Amid news of other cost-cutting moves, including executive-level layoffs in the marketing department, it’s now been reported that Markle’s show is among several projects Netflix has shelved.

Archewell Productions, the company of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, announced last year that Markle would serve as executive producer pearl – a children’s series about a 12-year-old girl inspired by famous feminist women in history.

Even if Netflix decided against it pearlA representative for the streaming company told BBC News they would continue to work with Archewell Productions on a number of other titles.

One of them is a documentary series entitled Heart of Invictus about the athletes who compete in the Invictus Games for Injured Veterans.

The series will focus on athletes who competed in the fifth Invictus Games, a sporting event founded by Prince Harry, in The Hague last month. Prince Harry has been a hands-on patron from the start, helping launch the first event in London in 2014.

The Independent has reached out to a representative from Archewell Productions for comment.
