Netflix orders first Harry, Meghan series

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Netflix is launching its first series from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s prodco Archewell Productions, in partnership with The Invictus Games Foundation.

Titled Heart of Invictus, the docuseries will follow a group of competitors from around the world on their road to the next Invictus Games in The Hague in the Netherlands.

The next edition of the sporting event, which sees wounded and injured service men and women compete, was initially due to take place in The Hague in 2020 but has been pushed back to 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Orlando von Einsiedel is directing Heart of Invictus, with Joanna Natasegara producing and Prince Harry and The Invictus Games Foundation exec producing.

“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,” said Prince Harry, co-founder of Archewell Productions and patron of The Invictus Games Foundation.

“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.”

Elsewhere, Netflix has picked up a docuseries about the life of American rapper Kanye West, which is due to launch this year.

The as-yet untitled multi-part series will feature over 20 years’ worth of footage and home videos of West’s life, covering his career in music and fashion, his failed 2020 presidential bid and the death of his mother.

The docuseries’ launch was first reported by Billboard.
