Is TV production the future for Harry and Meghan?

Earlier in August, a source told Vanity Fair that the couple saw their future in TV production.

The source said: “They have to earn a living and clearly there isn’t a market for after-dinner talking right now.

“So the public speaking is on hold for the moment and they are exploring other avenues.

“The focus is on production at the moment and I can see them making a series rather than Meghan starring in front of the camera.”

It was also claimed that Harry and Meghan has already pitched an idea to NBC Universal.

According to The Mirror, the idea was based around the Black Lives Matter movement.
