Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Announce First Netflix Series ‘Heart Of Invictus’ | Film News


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced their first series after they had signed a multi-year deal with Netflix back in September last year. The show will be entitled Heart of Invictus.


The documentary will cover the behind-the-scenes story of the Invictus Games. Harry founded the games in 2014 to honor people injured in service and this event provides athletic events for injured service members with sports like wheelchair basketball.


According to Netflix, Heart Of Invictus will follow “a group of extraordinary competitors from around the globe, all service members who have suffered life-changing injuries or illness on their road to the Invictus Games The Hagues 2020, now set to take place in 2022“. During the multi-episodes series, we will follow the competitors but also the organizers of the event.


Heart Of Invictus is the result of a partnership between Archewell Productions (the television production recently formed by the royal couple) and The Invictus Games Foundation.


Archewell’s mission statement says that Harry and Meghan would like to produce programs that “utilise the power of storytelling to embrace our shared humanity and duty to truth through a compassion lens“.


The couple will not be directing the series. Indeed, they have asked the director Orlando von Einsiedel and the producer Joanna Natasegara to oversee the realization of their project. The same duo already created documentaries for Netflix, The White Helmet and Evelyn. However, Harry will also be producing and will appear in front of the cameras in the series.


Netflix chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, says “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“.
