Prince Harry, a military veteran, founded Invictus Games in 2014. The event provides athletic events for injured service members.
The multi-episode series, a partnership between Archewell Productions and The Invictus Games Foundation, will follow the competitors and organizers of the event.
“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,” Prince Harry said in a statement. He will serve as executive producer on the series and will appear on camera.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Archewell Productions team are building an ambitious slate that implies the values and causes they hold dear,” Ted Sarandos, co-CEO of Netflix, said in a statement on Monday. “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. “
