Meghan Markle and Prince Harry called an “all-hands meeting” after Netflix decided to cancel Archewell Production’s animated series, Pearl, as part of a cost-cutting move, it has been claimed.
According to a source described as an Archewell insider, the Duke and Duchess were left “deeply concerned” by the streaming giant’s axing, made public in May.
As reported by the entertainment newsletter The Ankler, the source said: “Harry and Meghan called an all-hands meeting.
“They were deeply concerned about the optics of this.
“Meghan wanted to talk to Ted [Sarandos, co-CEO of Netflix].”
Another source denied the meeting had a 911-emergency tone.
Pearl was one of the two projects announced so far by Archewell Productions – Meghan and Harry’s production powerhouse dedicated to creating content for Netflix – in July last year.
