Oprah Winfrey & Prince Harry Team Up For New Documentary Series On Mental Health
On Wednesday (April 10), it was announced that a new documentary series headed to Apple in 2020. Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry are teaming up to launch an untitled project set to focus on mental health issues. The pair will serve as co-creators and executive producers.
The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive, according to the Sussex Royal Instagram page.
“I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities, and a purpose-driven self,” Prince Harry said in a news release. “It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series which we have been developing together for several months.”
“Delighted to be partnering with you,” Winfrey wrote in the comments section. “Hope we shed a lot of Light. And change some lives!”
