A British documentary special about soon-to-be-married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has sold to more than 100 countries.
“Prince Harry & Meghan: Truly, Madly, Deeply” went out on ITV in the U.K. earlier this month, before the couple’s official engagement announcement Monday. It looks ahead to Harry and Meghan’s upcoming marriage, their wedding day, and how their lives will change, drawing on firsthand accounts from those who know the couple.
ITN Productions made the documentary for ITV in the U.K. The ITV Choice channel has now picked it up for Asia, Middle East and Africa. CBC has it in Canada and Seven Network in Australia.
In Europe, W9 has acquired the documentary for France, TV2 for Norway, and TV3 for Ireland. BBC Lifestyle in Poland and Sanoma in Finland have also snapped up the program.
Distributor Orange Smarty said it was also fielding offers from broadcasters in Austria, Italy, and the Netherlands in the wake of Monday’s news that the prince and Markle will marry next spring. The sales company is also confident of securing a U.S. deal in the wake of the engagement news.
Markle has appeared in “Suits,” “90210” and “Horrible Bosses.”
