Netflix is producing a short series of 6 episodes that talk about the journey of the young Prince Muhammad bin Salman.
In December 2020, social media users claimed that Netflix is producing a short documentary about Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Users claimed that Netflix will produce a short series of 6 episodes about the journey of the young Prince Muhammad bin Salman. The series will reflect how the Prince is confronting terrorism and supporting women.
Misbar didn't find any evidence that proves that the circulating news about Mohamed bin Salman and Netflix is true. Netflix didn't announce anything related to the claim on any of its official platforms.
@NetflixWorld is not an official account for Netlflix, therefore we can't trust the news this account spreads.
During our investigation, we found that this rumor has been circulating since 2019 on Twitter.

Netflix has blocked an episode of its show “Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj” from streaming in Saudi Arabia after the Saudi government complained that the episode — which is critical of the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman — violated its cybercrime laws.
