The first project to be born of the contract signed between the Sussexes and Netflix has been announced: it will be a documentary on the Invictus Games.
Heart of Invictus
, the project, proposed in the form of a docu-series, will focus on the journey of several participants in this sports competition reserved for former members of the armed forces disabled after having suffered combat injuries.
Prince Harry, who helped create the event in 2014, has since become a sponsor of the Invictus Games Foundation.
The next edition of the Invictus Games will take place in 2022 in The Hague, the Netherlands.
“Since the very first Invictus Games in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in an 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 way to the Netherlands next year.
As Archewell Productions' first series with Netflix, partnering with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn't be more excited about the journey ahead or more proud of the Invictus community to continually inspire global healing, human potential and sense of self-giving, ”Prince Harry said in a statement.
The success (or not) of this first program offered by Archewell Productions, the company created by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, could well determine their future in the United States.
The couple had indeed revealed to Oprah Winfrey that they had never considered becoming producers before finding themselves forced to support themselves by leaving their functions as senior members of the British royal family.
“It was suggested to me by someone when my family literally cut me off, and I had to pay for our security service… From my point of view, all I needed was was enough money for my family to be safe, ”he said.
The couple will be content to produce
