Taraji P. Henson and Big Sean Revealed Mental Health Issues, now Oprah Winfrey’s Tackling Mental Health with Prince Harry
What does Apple Inc, Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry all have in common? Apart from lot’s of money…the answer is an upcoming documentary series on mental health that will air on Apple’s forthcoming streaming service. In March, Apple announced its own TV and movie streaming service, enlisting superstars to try to overcome its rivals’ head start.
Kensington Palace announced Wednesday Harry and Winfrey will serve as co-creators and executive producers of the as-yet-untitled project, reports USA Today
In a statement released by the palace, Harry revealed he has been working on the multi-part docuseries for several months with Winfrey.
“I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self,” Harry said. “It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better.”
In March, Oprah and other Hollywood A-listers trekked to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, for an event designed to showcase a slate of TV shows coming this fall.
Oprah told the Apple crowd that she and Harry had talked about purpose and storytelling and how the tech giant plans to provide “a unique opportunity to rise to our best selves in how we use, and choose to use, both our technology and our humanity.”
