A year after the Sussexes began their $25 million collaboration with Spotify, the music streaming platform is taking over the struggling project and is looking for three producers.
For those interested, Meghan Markle and Harry are looking for audiovisual specialists! If the Sussexes have committed to Spotify, a year ago, to produce exclusive content via their production company Archewell Audio for the platform, the project is stalled. Indeed, since the signing of the $25 million contract, only one episode of their podcast has been canned and broadcast. Then nothing more. So faced with this wait, the streaming giant takes the hand and recruits three producers to join the project.
The announcement for a producer position published by Gimlet Projects, in charge of Spotify’s productions, and relayed by Meghan and Harry themselves, as reported by The Express UK, reveals that they are “currently building a team that will build and launch a new original show with Archewell, bringing female celebrity speech to light.” The latter will be in charge of “development, research and episode production”. All positions are offered for six months full-time, in Los Angeles.
Meghan and Harry struggle to meet their contracts with American giants
Installed in California since they were released from their royal obligations, Meghan Markle and Harry are overwhelmed by contracts with Google, Spotify or Netflix. And so far, only a 33-minute podcast with Sir Elton John and James Corden has been produced. The patience of the American firms is thus tested by the Sussexes. If Spotify takes over, Netflix demands “proof” of their future work. Under pressure, they will have to get down to business.
