Really exciting for Invictus Games. I had a feeling that they would be involved in one of his projects for Netflix. What an amazing way to highlight the organization and athletes. Really looking forward to seeing this series.

Interesting ... Considering last year he filed legal complaint against The Times for the article by Roya Nikkhah about the cancellation of the charity fundraiser because of his Netflix deal. (The article mentions something about "a conflict over a planned deal with a rival streaming service" – the event was to be streamed by Amazon). Was this already in the plan, thus the legal complaint?

Note:
This is the article I'm referring: Harry and Meghan’s Netflix deal scuppers Invictus bash (archive: https://archive.ph/9QdhM). It still up with no correction whatsoever other than a note of "This article is the subject of a legal complaint from the Duke of Sussex"

IIRC Harry put out a statement saying that the event was canceled due to the pandemic which, ya know, makes sense. Seems the Times was jumping on a connection. No one was having galas and still not having them. The games has been postponed twice.

They now have a deal with Netflix for a documentary series. I don't see how it connects to Amazon streaming a fundraiser event. Not to mention Harry has a series on Apple+ coming out too. If that doesn't conflict why would Amazon's one night only event?

That's good. Nothing too surprising, Harry has been involved in several "Lead up to Invictus" or the "Importance of Invictus" documentaries before. The only difference this time is that it is commercial.

I wonder if the next one will be on Sentebele?

So glad to read that Invictus is going to be the focus of Harry’s first doco-series for Netflix. Its an impressive and worthy cause, and one that has been close to Harry’s heart from the beginning. The competitors overcome tremendous obstacles, physical and mental, to compete at the Games, and its great that it will all be documented this time.

There has been loads of these programmes. All very worthy but I don't think I will learn anything new from it.

I am of the opinion that once the BBC do docs on things there is literally no point. And I dont like Netflix documentaries except the one about the murdered nun.

I can think of so many ways they can expand the Invictus Games into a documentary series and make it interesting to watch. Normally, the public is only made aware of the actual games (which has been put on the back burner due to the pandemic) but actually the planning and the training goes on every single day and some of the stories of the athletes, themselves, are totally amazing.

I think Archewell Productions have hit on a winner here. I'd definitely watch it.

It's a common documentary topic. Following athletes journeys to big competitions. Following putting on events. It isn't reinventing the wheel.

One of the best I was Steve Redgraves 4 year journey to 5th Olympic gold.

The BBC and (other broadcasters) does "Road to Invictus" docs every time the games are hosted usually with Harry participating, showing athletes training and the selection process along with how they got injured. The used to have segments on Breakfast as well.

In 2016 he even got HM and the Obamas involved:



This was from the games that were supposed to happen in 2020:

I'm sure this will be a worthy documentary and they might well find a fresh way to do it, but it's not particularly new ground, just commercialised. It may well have picked because Harry was comfortable with it and already knows how to do it, rather than launching in to something brand new.

I bet it'd include Jon Bon Jovi doing "Unbroken". Any publicity these Invictus Games get, no matter from what corner, is for a very worthy cause. The Invictus Games actually started out to be a one time thing but very quickly expanded as the value of the games and their impact on the athletes and all that are involved in them became a reality.

It's a very worthy thing. Probably the best thing Harry will ever do and if course given his nonroyalness the BBC are unlikely to promote it going forward so it is good to get the publicity but the series won't be out for over a year yet maybe 2. What are they doing in the meantime?

But i still don't think anyone does this better than the BBC

IMHO this is a worthy choice for their Netflix project. Looking forward to the finished project.

I honestly believe that his championing of the Invictus Games was a big reason for his popularity. Hopefully, doing this helps him in the same way again.

Actually this is the last paragraph of that article:
Quote:
An Invictus spokesman said: “The event was shelved because the primary revenue generator was ticket sales from a live concert in Los Angeles in the spring of 2021. Given current circumstances with Covid, the event needed to be reconceptualised. This was an independent decision made prior to a partnership with Netflix. The duke remains committed as ever to the Invictus Games.”
I'm not saying that it's wrong for him to do it with Netflix nor that he shouldn't. I think it's good if he can do some collaboration with both Netflix Amazon (like William and Earthshot Prize; docu with ITV and the event with bbc). When it's for charity purpose, more publicity is a good thing.
