This will be Netflix’s first title with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who are sure to make a debut in the series, with Prince Harry set to talk on camera.
Other projects apparently in the pipeline include feature films, tv series and even content for children.
According to the royal pair, the aim of Archewell Productions was to create new video which can “embrace our shared humanity and duty to truth through a compassionate lens,” explains the couple’s mission statement.
With a background and highly impressive resume in acting, this project comes as no difficult task for Meghan who has always been very vocal about her love for content creation and production, starring in the hit TV series Suits for seven years until 2018.
As for Prince Harry, executive producing this series will be a first, but as the proud founder of the games since 2014, we’re sure the royal’s passion and enthusiasm for the event will ring through.
Speaking about this new series, Ted Sarandos, Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer spoke about this new partnership with Meghan and Harry by saying:
“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.”
As for release date, we’re not sure on that yet but we will keep you posted once we know more.
