What We Know About the Sussex's Next Netflix Project
| LAST UPDATE 12/27/2022
Many of us spent the first half of December 2022 binging our way through the Meghan and Harry Netflix documentary. The six-part series had them spilling all the English Royal secrets, and we just couldn't get enough. Following the episode drop, Netflix announced their next Sussex collab project, Live to Lead. This may not be the best news for those feeling slightly fatigued by the couple's high-level press coverage. But, for everyone else, who can't wait to see what the couple does next, we've gathered together everything you need to know about this upcoming release...
"Live To Lead highlights the fundamental values, daily disciplines, and guiding principles that leaders employ to motivate others and create meaningful change," the Netflix synopsis reads. Executively produced by the ex-royals, the seven-part series will feature the couple hosting and discussing a range of inspirational leaders from the past and present. Under the direction of Geoff Blackwell, the couple will sit down with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, social justice attorney Bryan Stevenson, climate activist Greta Thunberg, and many more.
"This was inspired by Nelson Mandela, who once said, 'What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived,'" Prince Harry said in the trailer's opening. "It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead," Meghan added. "It's about people who have made brave choices," Harry continued before Meghan said, "to fight for change and to become leaders." "And giving inspiration to the rest of us. To live, to lead," concluded Harry.
Not only was the series inspired by Mandela, but it was also produced in collaboration with the Nelson Mandela Foundation. "With the world in the state that it is in, trying to heal from a global pandemic, with the rise of populism and misinformation, the need for effective leadership is critical," the foundation statement read. "Live to Lead was made to contribute towards inspiring better leaders, ones that are committed to ending poverty and inequity and who show the lead in making the just society of Nelson Mandela's dreams." Feeling inspired? All episodes will be available on December 31.
