What We Know About Meghan And Harry's First Netflix Series

After their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been making a lot of headlines recently. However, while some fans might still be focused on details they revealed about the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been diligently working on their Archewell Productions company. According to E! News, the couple's new series, Heart of Invictus, will premiere on Netflix and focus on athletes that are participating in the 2022 Invictus Games. Those that are featured in the series are service members, who have suffered life-altering injuries and illnesses. 

The athletes compete in nine different sports that include cycling, archery, powerlifting and wheelchair rugby (via Help for Heroes). "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," Harry said in a statement, per E! News. "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."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new show is a project they're passionate about

The announcement of the series comes on the heels of the multi-million-dollar deal that the pair signed with Netflix at the end of last year, according to Deadline. The new show will follow the athletes as they train and offer stories of hope for viewers. Harry has been very involved with the Invictus Games, since they began in 2014, and it's something very close to his heart. As such, he is an executive producer on the series and will also appear on camera during the episodes. 

Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer of Netflix, explained the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working hard to create content that they believe in. "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," Sarandos said.
