Harry and Meghan's first Netflix series is called "Heart of Invictus," and we already have a good feeling about it.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have just signed a massive multi-deal with Netflix that could include a variety of projects such as documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted TV series, and children's programming — all exclusive to the streamer.
They have just announced what the first project will be about — at least, just sort of it. The docuseries — that has already a name — will be inspired by the Invictus Game, that is founded by Prince Harry, who is also a military veteran.
"Heart of Invictus" will follow the organizers and competitors of the game. The competitors have all gone through some sort of injury or illness and they will share their life stories as well as document their training to the Invictus Game.
The docu-series is a partnership between The Invictus Games Foundation and Archewell Productions, founded by the royal couple.
"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."
Prince Harry is excited about the latest project and to share the inspiring stories from the Invictus community as it's a source of inspiration and human potential, he says in an interview with Oprah.
As part of the partnership, the project will support and provide funding to The Invictus Games Foundation. And, as part of that, the Invictus community will be given virtual sports activities to help them recover and prepare.
"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"
Dominic Reid, chief executive of the Invictus Games Foundation
And we, as spectators, couldn't be more excited. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are constantly busy putting their hearts and shining the light on special causes, so we've got a feeling this next project will be no different.
