Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan can now add Hollywood producers to their expanding resume.

Per the New York Times, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have founded a currently-unnamed production company and have signed a multiyear deal with Netflix. As part of the deal, the Sussexes are set to produce upcoming docuseries, feature films, scripted shows, and children's programming for the streaming platform. The Netflix deal comes six months after the royal couple's official departure as senior working members of the royal family.

"Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope," said Prince Harry and Meghan in a statement. "As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us." They couple added that Netflix's massive audience—currently 193 million subscribers strong—has an "unprecedented reach [that] will help us share impactful content that unlocks action."

Both Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have made separate appearances in different streaming programs this year. In March, it was revealed that Meghan narrated the Disney+ wildlife documentary Elephant, while Prince Harry gave an interview in the Netflix documentary Rising Phoenix, which highlights the stories of Paralympic athletes.

"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 said in a statement.
