News of the agreement was first reported in an exclusive by Variety on Thursday. The outlet also reported that Meghan’s team at WME will include Dwayne Johnson’s representative, Brad Slater; Serena Williams’ agent, Jill Smoller; and Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, WME’s global entertainment and sports unit.
WME will also represent Prince Harry and Meghan’s company Archewell, Variety reported.
Through Archewell Productions – which falls under the umbrella of Archewell – the Sussexes have a multi-year production deal with streaming giant Netflix. In December 2022, they released two docuseries: “Harry & Meghan,” a six-parter offering their perspective on their life in the British royal family; and “Live to Lead,” which interviewed leaders in their fields.
Archewell Audio similarly has a partnership with Spotify, and has released “Archetypes,” an original podcast series, on the platform.
