And what of the streaming companies themselves, who showered them with these multi-million dollar deals? Were they competent? It was a known fact that they did not have the proven ability to produce what seems to have been expected of them (i.e. top-quality podcasts, documentaries or other 'content'). I said it many months ago in this thread that Harry and Meghan do not have any value to offer these streaming companies. Instead, it seems like their taking on the Markles in such circumstances was an attempt to undermine the British monarchy, by publicly rewarding them at the height of their defamation campaign against the Royal Family.
'Turns out Meghan Markle was not a great audio talent, or necessarily any kind of talent': Hollywood talent agency supremo Jeremy Zimmer dismisses Duchess as a talentless broadcaster after Spotify axed its $22m deal with the SussexesThe Duchess of Sussex has been dismissed as a talentless broadcaster by one of Hollywood’s most powerful figures.
Jeremy Zimmer, who has guided the film careers of stars such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Damian Lewis, gave his withering verdict on the abilities of the American former actress after streaming giant Spotify axed its £18million deal with her and Prince Harry after just one podcast series.
Zimmer, the chief executive of United Talent Agency, said he was not surprised that Spotify had ditched the couple.
‘Turns out Meghan Markle was not a great audio talent, or necessarily any kind of talent,’ he said.
Speaking to the news website Semafor at the Cannes Lions advertising festival in France, Zimmer added. ‘And, you know, just because you’re famous, doesn’t make you great at something.’
After they have proven their uselessness, and particularly after the South Park episode, and their subsequently becoming the laughing stock of Hollywood, they are being cast aside by Spotify and Netflix as damaged goods. Anyone who lacked the courage to criticize them publicly before is piling on them now, and it almost makes me feel sorry for them. They are possibly finding that their treatment in Hollywood is much more brutal than anything they would have experienced had they decided to remain in Britain.
