Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Pitching a "Top-Secret" Hollywood Project

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly pitching a "top-secret project," potentially a TV series, around Hollywood, according to Variety.

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly pitching a "top-secret project" around Hollywood, according to Variety
  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already met with several major networks to discuss their pitch, including NBCUniversal.
  • While it sounds like the Sussexes are pitching a TV series, it's unclear whether it'll be scripted or unscripted.
  • Before you get your hopes up: Meghan will not be acting in the project, with an insider saying she has "no plans" to revive her former career.

It seems likely Meghan and Harry are pitching a TV series, as they held meetings with various networks in June, Variety reports. One such network: NBCUniversal. The royals met with the company's "top executives," among them NBCUniversal Content Studios chairman Bonnie Hammer. Hammer already has a connection to Meghan, dating back to her Suits acting days.

It's still unknown whether the Sussexes are planning a scripted or unscripted TV series (and there's a chance it's not a TV series at all).

And secondly, the Sussexes want to take a hands-on role as joint producers on their proposed project.

Alas, that's about all there is to report for now on Meghan and Harry's intriguing new venture, with both NBCUniversal and the Sussexes' representatives declining to comment for Variety's story. But we'll keep you posted, because this promises to be major
