Earlier this month, Apple TV+ confirmed that another documentary series is heading to the streaming service before the end of May. The Me You Can’t See has a strong focus on mental health, two extremely noteworthy hosts leading the charge, and now an official trailer.
Just a week ago, Apple announced that the new mental health docuseries The Me You Can’t See would premiere on Friday, May 21. The announcement came along with a promotional banner, with plenty of information to go along with it, but no trailer at the time. But the streaming service is fixing that today, just a few days before the new series makes its debut.
Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, are both hosting the new docuseries. They are serving as executive producers on the project as well. The initial announcement of the new 10-episode limited series is described as lifting “the veil on the current state of mental health and emotional well-being.” The two hosts will be interviewing a variety of different individuals, including athletes and actors, over the course of the series.
The Me You Can’t See will showcase legendary actor Glenn Close (Damages), Langston Galloway of the Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs’ DeMar Derozan, artist Lady Gaga, Olympic boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs, the celebrity chef Rashad Armstead, and others.
Here’s the official description of the docuseries:
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.
