Meghan Markle Signs With Talent Agency WME To “Build Out Her Business Ventures”
Meghan Markle left behind royal treatment in Britain and is now turning the page to a new chapter in her life…where she’ll get the royal treatment in Hollywood. The former star of Suits, Deal or No Deal, and Get Him to the Greek just signed with A-listers-only talent agency William Morris Endeavors, aka WME, which is home to Denzel Washington, Hugh Jackman, Ben Affleck, and Meghan’s BFF Serena Williams. How nice of Serena Williams to put in a good word for Meghan. But sadly, if you were hoping to see Meghan play herself in future Lifetime movies and a future reboot of The Crown, you may be out of luck because she signed with WME to explore “business ventures.”
The agency announced the news on social media on Thursday, saying, “We are honored to announce that WME now represents Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, in all areas. The agency will be focusing on building out her business ventures across multiple facets of the agency and its broader ecosystem, including film and television production, brand partnerships, and more.”
According to Variety, multiple agencies were looking to add Meghan to their roster like a star college athlete in an NFL draft pick. Meghan’s gonna be represented by Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel (aka the guy that Jeremy Piven’s Entourage character is based on), followed by powerhouse agents Brad Slater and Jill Smoller, who will also rep Meghan and Prince Harry’s Archewell Productions.
Since being smuggled into L.A. with the help of noble ally Tyler Perry, Meghan, and Harry have been hoping their production company will allow them to continue their work in bold advocacy for women’s rights and… rom-coms, probably?
“So much of how my husband and I see things is through our love story. I think that’s what people around the world connected to, especially with our wedding. People love love. I’m not excluded in that sentiment,” Meghan said. “For scripted, we want to think about how we can evolve from that same space and do something fun. It doesn’t always have to be so serious. Like a good rom-com. Don’t we miss them? I miss them so much.”
So one day, we can expect to see a reboot of When Harry Met Sally called When Harry Met Meghan while scrolling through Netflix. And here’s hoping that WME places a call to Canada to try to get their client to return to her greatest stage: Retimans commercials!
