Megan Markle: Duchess of Sussex to present Netflix Black Lives Matter | Royal | News

Last week, the broadcast giant announced a major new deal with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The couple agreed to produce documentaries and children’s shows for the company.

While the exact number has not been revealed, the Megan and Harry deal on Netflix has been estimated at $ 150 million (£ 120 million).

According to the Daily Mirror, Megan is keen to make a movie about Patrice Colors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

It is said that the prominent activist “deeply inspired” the Duchess.

Black Lives Matter launched again in 2013 with Opal Tumti and Alicia Garza.

A source said, “Megan was amazed by the amazing work that Patrice did. She thinks her story should be told – and she would like to be the one making it.”

Ms Colors said previously that she would refuse to meet President Trump, whom she described as an “example of evil.”

The Black Lives Matter movement saw an increase in support after the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, while he was detained by police in Minneapolis.

In response, massive protests erupted across the United States, and even beyond, demanding social and racial justice.

Last January, the Duke and Duchess caused a worldwide sensation by announcing that they intended to step down as prominent members of the royal family.

Instead, the couple pledged financial independence and said they would split their time between North America and Britain.

After a short stay in Canada, they moved to California, Megan’s hometown, shortly before the coronavirus lockdown began.

They recently bought a new £ 11.2m property north of Los Angeles.

The luxurious property has a swimming pool, tennis court and a children’s cottage.

Responding to the Netflix deal, the Duke and Duchess said: “Our lives, whether independent of one another or as a couple, have allowed us to understand the strength of the human spirit, courage, resilience, and the need for connection.

“By working with diverse societies and their environments, to shine a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that conveys information but also gives hope.

“As new parents, creating inspiring family programs is also important to us, and so is powerful storytelling through an honest and workable lens.”
