British Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will produce their first Netflix Inc series which will focus on athletes competing at the Invictus Games for Injured Veterans in The Hague in 2022.
Harry will appear on camera in the documentary series titled At the heart of Invictus and serve as executive producer through the couple’s Archewell Productions, Netflix said in a statement Tuesday.
The series will provide behind-the-scenes stories from athletes and organizers as they prepare for the event, which has been postponed until next spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Netflix said.
Orlando von Einsiedel will direct the multi-episode series and Joanna Natasegara will be the producer, Netflix said. The duo produced the Oscar-winning documentary short White helmets about a rescue group in Syria.
In a statement, Harry and Meghan said: “We will focus on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, creating inspiring family programs is also important to us.”
Invictus games is a multisport event created in 2017 by Prince Harry who served as a soldier in Afghanistan for military personnel injured in combat.
The couple, who made the news following an interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey last month, signed a multi-year production deal with Netflix in September.
Harry and Meghan now live in Southern California after breaking up with the British Royal Family for good.
