On September 2, Netflix announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed a major multiyear deal with the streaming service focussed on documentary projects, feature films, televisions series, and children's shows, per The New York Times. “We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere,” Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said in a statement obtained by the Times.
Their well-known titles already include the documentaries American Factory, Crip Camp, and Becoming. "One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” a statement from Barack Obama to The New York Times read at the time. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix—we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.
