Meghan Markle – NBC’s ‘Deal or No Deal’

*The Game Show Network (GSN) is cashing in on the sudden popularity of royal-to-be Meghan Markle by whipping up a documentary that includes her early stint on NBC’s “Deal or No Deal.”

The one-hour “Cover Story: Meghan Markle – The Prince And The Game Show Model,” premiering on Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. ET, will detail the story of her modest beginnings in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, to “Deal or No Deal” model, to hit-show actress, to humanitarian, and finally as Prince Harry’s bride-to-be.

Before the show, GSN will run a marathon of Meghan’s “Deal Or No Deal” episodes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET also on GSN.

This all-new documentary features:

· Photos of Meghan from the family’s personal album
· All new in-depth interview with her step sister Samantha Grant, giving insight into her childhood, upbringing and family life
· Rare and all-new interviews with those that knew Meghan before she made it: her fellow “Deal or No Deal” castmates and the owners of the yogurt shop Meghan worked at as a teenager
· Exclusive interview with Larry King who speaks about Meghan and Princess Diana’s similarities, having interviewed both women

Meanwhile, Samantha Grant continues to dish about her famous half-sister to the tabloids.

In a new interview with InTouch magazine, Grant detailed their family drama and shared never-before-seen photos from Meghan’s childhood.

Grant, who is writing a tell-all book, has not been in contact with the 36-year-old for several years, something she blames on the actress’ mother, Doria Ragland, who was married to their father, Thomas Markle, until the 1980s.

“In my mind Doria wanted to run around and seal off all the hatches. She became very possessive and controlling,” Grant said of her opinion of Ragland’s behavior since Meghan and Prince Harry started dating. Grant suggested Ragland might want to live with the couple after the wedding.

Grant also blamed Ragland for getting between Meghan and her father. “If you can spend $75,000 on a dress, you can spend $75,000 on your dad,” she said of Meghan’s engagement photo shoot gown.
