Distributor buys the rights to previously unseen pilot

A pilot of a raunchy party comedy from Meghan Markle’s past is set to be released almost a decade after it was made.

The Duchess of Sussex made The Boys And Girls Guide To Getting Down in 2011 as a possible Comedy Central series before landing her career-defining role on Suits – but it never saw the light of day.
