Oprah Says Prince Harry is a Legit Executive Producer On New TV Series

Oprah said Prince Harry‘s role as co-exec producer on their new upcoming TV series is far from a vanity title, and revealed that the Duke of Sussex has the chops to be a real deal producer.

O was leaving “The Daily Show” in NYC after sitting down with Trevor Noah, and she handled the huge crowd outside like it was a walk in the park.

Through all the screaming fans, and signing scripts for “The Color Purple,” Oprah was asked about collaborating with Prince Harry on an upcoming documentary series for Apple that will focus on mental health.

Oprah said she doesn’t do anything “halfway,” and that Meghan Markle‘s hubby is a real partner who makes creative decisions about what will ultimately air.

Oprah is definitely enjoying her time behind the camera, and revealed that she is done with acting, admitting, “I just want to produce.”

The video clip is fantastic, as are Oprah’s sunglasses, and she was in such a talkative mood she even revealed the one food you won’t ever see her using Weight Watchers points on.

We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020. The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform. The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive. This commitment builds on The Duke of Sussex’s long-standing work on issues and initiatives regarding mental health, where he has candidly shared personal experience and advocated for those who silently suffer, empowering them to get the help and support they deserve. His Royal Highness has spent many years working with communities throughout the UK and young people across the Commonwealth to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and broaden the conversation of mental wellness to accelerate change for a more compassionate, connected and positive society. Quote from HRH: “I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. 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. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”
