Netflix ’s Harry & Meghan doc series is officially here and debate is already raging over whether the Royal Family were shown the series prior to launch, and how or if they will respond. The family claim they were not asked for comment on the hotly-anticipated six-parter, BBC Royal Correspondent Jonny Dymond told the BBC’s Today this morning, but the first episode, which dropped at 8 a.m. GMT (12 a.m. PST), starts with the disclaimer: “Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series.” It adds: “This is a first-hand account of Harry and Meghan’s story told with never before seen personal archive. All interviews were completed by August 2022.” Rumors were swirling this week over whether the Royal Family had seen the show following the release of two trailers, in which Harry spoke of “the pain and suffering of women” marrying into the Royal Family and said he would tell the full truth behind the couple’s relationship with the … [Read more...] about Netflix’s ‘Harry & Meghan’: Were The Royal Family Given Prior Sight Of The Doc?

Netflix ’s Harry & Meghan looks set to reopen old wounds about the controversial 1995 Panorama interview as the Duke of Sussex broke rank to say his mother was “speaking the truth of her experience” in the interview. In episode one of the hotly-anticipated doc series, which came out this morning, Netflix uses footage of the now-disgraced interview secured by Martin Bashir for the BBC to illustrate Diana’s treatment by the media. Harry states before the clip: “I think we all know she was deceived into giving the interview but at the same time she spoke the truth of her experience.” Prince William has previously said the interview “holds no legitimacy and should never be aired again,” jarring with Harry’s remark in the Netflix series and the fact that Netflix aired the clip. The clip shows Diana saying she was “terrified of being driven away by the media” and that she found the ‘press pack’ “incredibly daunting as I don’t like being the center of attention.” The … [Read more...] about ‘Harry & Meghan’ Reopens Panorama Interview Wounds After Prince Claims Diana Was “Speaking The Truth Of Her Experience”
Three hours into Netflix doc series Harry & Meghan and still no tell-all truths from the darkest corners of the House of Windsor. Anyone who had expected the curtain to be lifted on the deep-state machinations of The Firm to protect the brand will be feeling short-changed by Volume I which dropped today. The reported estrangement between Prince Harry and Prince William remains a closed book. Whatever the Queen said to Harry when he resigned from royal duties, it is still – like almost everything the Queen has ever said about anything – swathed in a decorous silence. There are, as promised on the program’s title page, a wealth of images from the vaunted “never before seen personal archive,” but they’re mostly holiday snaps. Very happy snaps, certainly; very sweetly romantic and often goofy memories that include an Instagram pic of Meghan dressed up as a dog, but nothing that would trouble the print run of a tabloid front page. The story so far is a … [Read more...] about ‘Harry & Meghan’ Volume I Review: Straightforward Romance Lacks Real Royal Dirt
EXCLUSIVE : London-based Lark is one of the buzziest new boutique film and TV agencies in Europe. The company was quietly set up by former Troika Director Harriet Pennington Legh in 2020 but gained momentum this year with the addition of former Casarotto and 42 rep Sophie Dolan and longtime Independent Talent agent Roxana Adle . Exiting bigger agencies usually comes with some bumps and bruises (and temporary no-press gags) but the trio took the plunge and are now reaping the rewards. Together, the three UK agenting dynamos now lead Lark and join a new wave of vibrant UK rep businesses that launched a decade ago with 42 and most recently spawned B-Side Management, which opened shop last year. Lark’s list is curated and cerebral but also fresh and increasingly acclaimed. The stable of global writers and filmmakers includes Sebastián Lelio, Joanna Hogg, Ritesh Batra, Karim Aïnouz, Shannon Murphy, Maria Schrader, Oliver Hermanus, Ali Abbasi, Remi Weekes, Alma Har’el, … [Read more...] about Lark: The Story Behind The UK’s Hottest New Film & TV Lit Agency
