Apple TV+ has set the premiere streaming date for its previously announced docuseries, The Me You Can’t See, from co-creators and executive producers Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, and co-directors and EPs Dawn Porter (John Lewis: Good Trouble) and Asif Kapadia (Amy).
The series bows on the streaming giant May 21.
Throughout The Me You Can’t See, Winfrey (pictured right) and Prince Harry (left) guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional well-being while opening up about their own mental health journeys and struggles.
The series features high-profile guests including Lady Gaga, Glenn Close and DeMar DeRozan, 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 Me You Can’t See promises to transcend culture, age, gender and socioeconomic status to destigmatize the mental health.
Producers also partnered with an advisory board of 14 mental health professionals and experts across a variety of specialties to help shed light on different pathways to treatment.
In addition to Winfrey, Prince Harry, Porter and Kapadia, the series is executive produced by Harpo Productions’ Terry Wood and Catherine Cyr. Jon Kamen and Dave Sirulnick executive produce for RadicalMedia, with Alex Browne serving as showrunner.
Jen Isaacson and Nell Constantinople serve as producers.
“Now more than ever, there is an immediate need to replace the shame surrounding mental health with wisdom, compassion, and honesty,” Winfrey said in a statement. “Our series aims to spark that global conversation.”
“We are born into different lives, brought up in different environments, and as a result are exposed to different experiences. But our shared experience is that we are all human,” Prince Harry added. “The 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 empathy, and strength in honesty.”
