Heart of Invictus is the latest offering from the nine-figure partnership between Netflix and the couple’s Archewell Productions. It follows two docuseries that debuted last December, Live to Lead and Harry & Meghan, which delved into Meghan and Harry’s complicated relationship history with Buckingham Palace and the royal family.
But after years of documentary series, the couple are soon turning their sights on scripted content as it was recently announced that the pair would be adapting Carley Fortune‘s best-selling novel Meet Me at the Lake for Netflix.
“I never thought I’d be making this announcement, but since I am, it feels fitting that I’m doing it from the cottage where it all began,” Carley shared on Instagram August 7. “I’m thrilled to confirm that I’m teaming up with Netflix and Archewell productions on the adaption of Meet Me at the Lake. I can’t imagine a more perfect partnership. Writing this book was a tremendous personal challenge, and to see it recognized in this way is truly incredible.”
This project, which centers around a chance encounter and a second chance at love, marks the production company’s first foray into romance as well as their first book adaption. However, as the couple revealed when establishing their deal with Netflix in 2020, they won’t shy away from any genre.
“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” Harry and Meghan said in a statement at the time of their deal. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
