Archewell Productions Unveils New Netflix Series on Culinary Delights and Polo Passion


Archewell Productions, the creative brainchild of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, has announced ambitious plans to produce two new nonfiction series with Netflix, signaling a deeper foray into the world of content creation. The Sussexes’ production company shared that these series are currently at the nascent stages of development, in line with their 2020 agreement with the streaming titan.

As part of this deal, the first series promises to bring audiences into a world of wholesome indulgence as The Duchess of Sussex shares her affinity for cooking, gardening, entertaining, and the cultivation of friendships. To translate this vision to the screen, Archewell Productions has engaged The Intellectual Property Corporation, a division of Sony Pictures Television, known for their work on Hulu’s ‘The D’Amelio Show’ and A&E’s critically acclaimed ‘Leah Remini: Scientology & the Aftermath’.

Leah Hariton, of ‘Selena + Chef’ fame, will take the helm as showrunner for the series, while Michael Steed, director of notable episodes from ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction’ and ‘Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown’ will oversee the direction. Meghan herself, in tandem with Chanel Pysnik, will executive produce for Archewell Productions. This collaboration extends to include Hariton as well as IPC veterans Aaron Saidman and Eli Holzman.

The second production venture is a deep dive into the competitive and glamorous world of professional polo. With the U.S. Open Polo Championship in Wellington, Florida, acting as the backdrop, the series will showcase the sport beyond its aesthetic appeal and bustling social scene. This program aims to unravel the intense dedication, strategy, and fervor that drive athletes to compete at the apex of this prestigious sport. Prince Harry’s own passion for polo, often captured by the lenses of international media, lends an authentic edge to the storytelling.

The creative efforts for this polo-centric series will be shouldered by Boardwalk Pictures, the company responsible for Netflix standouts like ‘Chef’s Table’, ‘Pepsi, Where’s My Jet?’ and the explorative ‘Sex, Love & Goop’. With such acclaimed production pedigree, the series is poised to offer an unprecedented peek into the dedication behind polo’s glamorous façade.

Archewell Productions has previously contributed to Netflix’s library with the intimate docuseries ‘Harry & Meghan’ that launched in December 2022. These upcoming series further fulfill the couple’s intention to create content that informs, uplifts, and inspires.

These two distinctly themed series mirror the Sussexes’ wide-ranging interests—from domestic bliss to the thundering thrill of competitive sports—while also encapsulating their penchant for storytelling. As Netflix subscribers around the globe await these new additions, Archewell Productions continues to firm up its position as a notable player in the arena of high-quality, impactful programming.

Ever since their high-profile departure from royal duties, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have charted a unique course in the media landscape. Both Archewell Productions and their audiobook and podcast initiatives under Archewell Audio mark the couple’s ongoing commitment to forge connections through shared experiences, compelling narratives, and community-focused endeavors.

This bold stride into Netflix’s domain of streaming entertainment underscores the couple’s evolving roles not just as former senior royals, but as producers determined to leave a distinctive mark on the global cultural canvas. With the fusion of fandom, culinary arts, and the equestrian sport of polo, the Sussexes are set to captivate audiences once more, bridging disparate worlds through the universal language of compelling storytelling.
