In the announcement post, Apple detailed how the documentary series will feature illuminating stories that help lift the web on the current state of mental health and emotional well-being.
In “The Me You Can’t See,” Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional well-being while opening up about their mental health journeys and struggles. Featuring high-profile guests, alongside a wide range of people from across the globe living with the challenges of mental health issues and addressing their emotional well-being, the series transcends culture, age, gender and socioeconomic status to destigmatize a highly misunderstood subject and give hope to viewers who learn that they are not alone. The producers partnered with 14 accredited and respected experts and organizations from around the world to help shed light on different pathways to treatment.
Guests in The Me You Can’t See include famous singer Lady Gaga, San Antonio Spurs player DeMar DeRozan, Olympic boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs, celebrity chef Rashan Armstead, Phoenix Suns player Langston Galloway, Glenn Close, and more. Prince Harry commented on the series:
We are born into different lives, brough up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences. But our shared experience is that we are all himan. Tha majority of us carry some form of unresolved trauma, loss or grief, which feels – and is – very personal. Yet the last year has shown us that we are all in this together, and my hope is that this series will show there is power in vulnerability, connection in empath, and strength in honesty.
In addition to Oprah and Harry, The Me You Can’t See is also executive produced by Harpo Production’s Terry Wood and Catherine Cyr, along with RadicalMedia’s Jon Kamen, Dave Sirulnick, and Alex Browne as showrunner.
