Archewell Productions was created by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to produce programming that informs, elevates, and inspires. Through its creative partnership with Netflix—the world’s leading streaming entertainment service with more than 195 million members—Archewell Productions will utilize the power of storytelling to embrace our shared humanity and duty to truth through a compassionate lens.
Archewell Productions’ first project with Netflix—Heart of Invictus—is being produced in partnership with The Invictus Games Foundation. From the Oscar-winning team of director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara (The White Helmets, Virunga, Evelyn), Heart of Invictus will showcase powerful stories of resilience and hope from competitors on their journey to Invictus Games The Hague 2020, which as we continue to recover from the global health pandemic is set to take place next year.
Since 2014, The Invictus Games has brought together wounded, injured, or sick servicemembers and veterans from across the world to participate internationally in a premier sporting competition—showing us how the power of sport can inspire and heal us all.
The Duke of Sussex, Co-Founder of Archewell Productions and Founder of The Invictus Games and The Invictus Games Foundation, said about the new docu-series:
“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. 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. As Archewell Productions’ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, 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.”
