Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are gearing up to make their mark in Hollywood. On Tuesday, some sources told Variety that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly been “quietly shopping an idea for a project around town.” While the idea is still mysterious and undiscovered, the duo reportedly held gatherings in June and aspires to work as joint producers. Here is what we know about Meghan and Harry’s Hollywood venture.

The outlet wrote that while the concept has been pitched to various media corporations, the 39-year-old retired American actress and the 35-year-old British prince shopped their notion to NBCUniversal. Bonnie Hammer, the chairman of NBCUniversal Content Studios fully recognizes Markle from her years of experience as an actress on Suits.
Both NBCUniversal and spokesperson for the couple denied clarifying the rumor when reached by the outlet. Though, an insider close to the couple asserted that Markle “has absolutely no intentions to act.”
Markle’s first role since her return to Hollywood was as a storyteller for “Elephant,” a Disney+ docuseries that aired in April. The flick serves Elephants Without Borders, an organization that protects elephants living in Botswana.
In 2019, Harry declared that he was pulling up with Oprah Winfrey for an Apple TV+ docuseries focusing on mental health. Just recently, he made an appearance in a trailer for Netflix’s upcoming documentary, titled “Rising Phoenix,” about the Paralympic Games. That film releases later this month.
According to the outlet, it is not known if Markle and Harry met with Apple or Netflix to throw their scheme.
The couple currently lives in Markle’s native California with their son Archie.
