Netflix has announced a new docuseries, Heart Of Invictus, made by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Productions.
The upcoming series is the first production to be announced by the streaming giant since the couple signed a major multi-million pound deal with Netflix last year. Heart Of Invictus will follow the journey of competitors as they build towards the games in 2022. Harry is a patron of The Invictus Games Foundation, and he commented: “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 these competitors’ moving and uplifting stories on their path to the Netherlands next year.
“As Archewell Productions‘ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, 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.”
Dominic Reid, chief executive of the Invictus Games Foundation, added: “We’re very excited about the opportunity to shine the global spotlight of Netflix on the men and women that we work with, in order to ensure that even more people can be inspired by their determination and fortitude in working towards their recovery.
“This partnership will also bring in significant funding to the charity. We are extremely grateful to our Founding Patron for his continued efforts to support the military community, and for making this partnership happen.”
Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer of Netflix, said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Archewell Productions team are building an ambitious slate that reflects the values and causes they hold dear.
“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.”
