It has been reported that Netflix executives are pushing to have the Duque and Duchess of Sussex’s film a home reality series as a result of Prince Harry’s bestselling memoir.
The Sun reports that the streaming giant’s executives “raised eyebrows” over the amount of personal and family bombshells in Spare compared to their more subdued recent docuseries Harry & Meghan.
According to their source, it has caused employers to increase their interest in a show shot like a fly-on-the-wall inside the couple’s $14.7 million estate in Montecito.
“Harry’s memoir has certainly been a talking point, and while many may think that executives would be annoyed at the volume of revelations in Spare versus the show, in truth they were different scenarios,” he added.
“They scored great viewing figures and want a second bite of the pie. The gloves are off now for Harry, and Netflix feels they are in prime position for a second project.”

“Moving forward, the aftermath of what happens to Harry and Meghan will be fascinating to viewers. We know that the couple films material all the time, so there remains a treasure trove left, which could make for dynamite viewing,” continued the source.
For Meghan and Harry’s six-part Netflix series, several of the interviews that were taped appeared to be conducted in a household environment. Later, however, it was asserted that the production had filmed at a different $33.5 million estate.
When it debuted on December 3, the Netflix documentary series broke all previous records for viewers. According to official statistics, viewers watched the first three episodes 81.55 million times in the first four days they were accessible.
As far as Netflix sees it, the Sussexes are a sure thing to bet on.
