Another day, another slightly dramatic update about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix docuseries: apparently they had a “falling out” with their original director.
According to Page Six, the couple initially hired Oscar-nominated director Garrett Bradley (who directed Netflix’s Naomi Osaka documentary) to helm their series, but “had a falling out with her over the vision of the project.”
Multiple sources tell the outlet that Garrett and the Sussexes couldn’t agree on the “tone” of their series, with one insider saying “Garrett wanted Harry and Meghan to film at home and they were not comfortable doing that. There were a few sticky moments between them, and Garrett left the project. Harry and Meghan’s own production company captured as much footage as they could before Liz Garbus was hired.”
Psst: apparently this director switcheroo explains why Meghan and Harry were seen with two different film crews on trips to New York City last year.
Meanwhile, Liz Garbus apparently also “clashed” with the Sussexes, and a source previously told Page Six that the couple “made significant requests to walk back content they themselves have provided — to the extent that some Netflix staff believe, if granted, it will effectively shelve the project indefinitely. Netflix is standing by the filmmakers.”
So, when is the docuseries airing? Despite reports that Prince Harry wanted it pushed back to 2023 (which is also when his memoir, Spare, drops), sources say the show is expected to drop in December…so…just a few weeks!
