Harry and Meghan are bringing another docuseries to Netflix.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s six-part docuseries Harry & Meghan canceled its final three episodes last Thursday – and the royal couple is already set for another.
Live to Lead will be a seven-part Netflix series featuring interviews with prominent leaders including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Greta Thunberg, Gloria Steinem, social justice advocate Bryan Stevenson and more.
The series was created with the goal of enabling these leaders to “share messages of courage, compassion, humility, hope and generosity.”
Netflix released the trailer for the series on Monday, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex voicing most of the video.
In the trailer, Prince Harry said the series was “inspired by Nelson Mandela.”
“In recent decades we have seen a rise in destructive leaders who, for example, control power by closing borders, spreading misinformation and inciting fear of those perceived as ‘different’. We feel there is a leadership crisis at many levels of society around the world,” the Nelson Mandela Foundation said in a statement.
The foundation hopes the series “will inspire a new generation of leaders.”
“With the world in the state it is in, trying to heal itself from a global pandemic, with the rise of populism and misinformation, the need for effective leadership is critical,” said Sello Hatang, executive director of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
“‘Live to Lead’ was designed to help inspire better leaders, committed to ending poverty and inequality, and taking a leadership role in achieving the just society Nelson Mandela dreams of.”
Prince Harry and Markle will executive produce the series, which is being produced by Blackwell & Ruth in association with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Sussexes’ production company Archewell and Cinetic Media.
Geoff Blackwell said the series came to life while working on a book about Mandela with Ruth Hobday in 2018.
“As we worked to chronicle 27 years of Mandela’s personal correspondence and reflect on his courageous and selfless commitment to the well-being of others, we were concurrently confronted with a news cycle that has relentlessly focused on certain international leaders who have acted in exactly the opposite way – shamelessly theirs Persecution continues self-interest, using divisive tactics and misinformation to serve power, not the people,” Blackwell said in a statement.
The contrast led Blackwell to want to tell the stories of people “distinguished by their moral courage, their belief in their ideals and values, and their prioritization of others.”
Blackwell contacted the Nelson Mandela Foundation and together they selected the people to be interviewed.
“The experience of interviewing them and sharing their stories has been enriching for all of us. By example, these leaders remind us of our own leadership and the best part of our humanity at a moment when the world needs true leaders more than ever,” the statement said.
The new documentary series follows Prince Harry and Markle’s personal docuseries, which have included many bombastic claims about the royal family and the couple’s exit from royal life.
Live to Lead launches on Netflix December 31st.
