Oprah Partners with Prince Harry
Oprah will be partnering with Britain's Prince Harry to create a documentary series on mental health for Apple's new streaming service. The multi-part documentary series, which will air on the Apple TV platform in 2020, aims to inspire viewers to have an "honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces." According to a statement from Kensington Palace, the project will attempt to equip people with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. Oprah, who attended Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle -- now the Duchess of Sussex -- in May, said the collaboration began when she was having a conversation with the Prince and asked him what the most important issues facing the world were. "He said there were two," she said on CBS News. "He said climate change and he said mental wellness, mental fitness, mental health." The media mogul subsequently told him about the series she was working on for Apple, upon which he expressed his interest in getting involved. The pair, who've been developing the project for the past few months, will partner as co-creators and executive producers on the show. More here.
