Prince Harry And Meghan Markle have announced their first Netflix series “Heart Of Invictus”, a docu-series that will reveal “the human stories and resilient spirit behind the Invictus Games.”
The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, both serving and veterans.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Tuesday, April 6, announced they have teamed up with Oscar-winning filmmakers Orlando Von Einsiedel and Joanna Natesegara to create Archewell’s first-ever Netflix series. Together, the group will tell the stories of athletes competing in the 2022 Invictus Games.
Prince Harry, in a statement, said, “Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve. This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year.”
“As Archewell Productions’ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation,” he continued, “I couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service.”
Harry will appear in the show and will serve as executive producer on the series.
Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer of Netflix, said Archewell Productions is already hard at work on creating content that matters, adding, “From the moment I met them, it’s been clear that the Invictus Games hold a very special place in their hearts, and I couldn’t be happier that their first series for Netflix will showcase that for the world in a way never seen before.”
