The now-cancelled series “Pearl”, which was still in the development stage at the time it was axed, centred on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who "finds inspiration in a variety of influential women throughout history".
An animated series that was being created by Meghan Markle has been “quietly dropped” by Netflix as the streaming platform deals with the loss of subscribers and falling stock prices, Deadline reports.
The series, "Pearl", was created by Markle via Archewell Productions, which the media outlet describes as a "shingle" that Meghan and her husband Prince Harry set up at Netflix in 2020 to "create scripted series, docuseries, documentaries, features and children’s programming".
The plot of “Pearl”, which was expected to be the first animated series by Archewell Productions and which was still in the development stage, centred on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who "finds inspiration in a variety of influential women throughout history".
"Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges", Markle previously said. "I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history".
