Markle’s 90-minute documentary was supposed to be exclusive to the UK’s Channel 5 but since he is such a hot commodity there is now talks that the documentary will be picked up by several other channels including one in the United States. Markle has been trying to tell his story of his daughter for some time now and in addition to the Channel 5 airing, it will also air on Nine Network in Australia. Because the documentary is being picked up and people are showing a lot of interest, it is only a matter of time till it is picked up by a U.S. channel.

So, how did Nine Network get the rights to air the documentary? Apparently, it was negotiated by Alaska TV’s creative director Ian Lamarra. He is also overseeing the United States sale of the show. This has led to rumors that the documentary will have a U.S. presence. There is even a higher chance of the documentary coming over to the U.S. since it aired on Channel 5 last week to a shocking 1.4 million viewers. It had the leading numbers that night over Channel 4 and BBC Two.
