VICE TV Readies Meghan Markle Documentary


The new VICE TV documentary VICE VERSA: Meghan Markle Escaping the Crown is slated to make its debut next month.

Produced by the U.K.-based production company ITN, the hour-long special explores the rise and unraveling of the Duchess of Sussex. It will investigate the role that the monarchy and British tabloid media played in vilifying her, confronting issues of race, prejudice and obsession. Meghan Markle Escaping the Crown will feature exclusive interviews with palace insiders and experts, including William and Harry’s former butler, the American wives of the British aristocracy and royal correspondents.

Meghan Markle Escaping the Crown will premiere on Tuesday, March 10, at 9 p.m., on VICE TV and be available on and the VICE TV app via iOS, Android, Apple TV and Chromecast. The documentary is VICE TV’s first release for VICE VERSA, a new series of independent documentary specials that will give voice to radical and unapologetic points of view.

Morgan Hertzan, executive VP and general manager, at VICE Television, said: “Our flagship documentary series VICE VERSA will serve as a hub for compelling storytelling that shakes the status quo and awakens viewers to new ideas. We take differing points of view of well-known stories and topics. Meghan Markle Escaping the Crown is a prime example of a point of view you won’t hear elsewhere—we’re tackling this subject in a confrontational way to say what’s really happening.”
