Insight TV Studios & VICE Studios Align for Invictus Games Docuseries


Insight TV Studios US has partnered with VICE Studios to co-produce I am Invincible, a three-part documentary series focused on the participants of the upcoming 2020 Invictus Games.

A multi-sport event for veterans that was founded by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, the Invictus Games was inspired by the Warrior Games in the U.S., which aims to use the power of sport to help combat veterans suffering from injury and illness recover physically, psychologically and socially. I am Invincible will go behind the scenes of the Invictus Games to tell the stories of the veterans competing and their journeys from trauma to recovery and their lives beyond their disabilities. The docuseries, which is being filmed entirely in 4K UHD HDR, is slated to premiere on April 18.

The 2020 Invictus Games will take place from May 9 to May 16 in The Hague, The Netherlands, bringing together over 500 competitors from 19 nations to compete in a series of adaptive sports, such as wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball and indoor rowing.

Marco Frazier, senior VP of Insight TV Studios US, said: “The word invictus means unconquerable in Latin and it is an apt moniker for the games that feature such incredibly inspiring and undaunted athletes. In I am Invincible, we aim to do justice to not only the fortitude of the men and women competing in this year’s Invictus Games, but to provide audiences with the reality of their lives—daily physical and psychological challenges and setbacks—which underscores how impactful these Games have been. VICE Studios shared our passion and vision for this series and we’re once again creating 4K UHD content together that is both an exceptional sensory experience, as well as riveting storytelling.”

Stefan Thieleman, general manager at VICE Studios Benelux, added: “At VICE Studios, we are committed to bringing the stories of inspirational characters to life and producing content of the highest quality. We look forward to continuing to work with Insight TV to create authentic and insightful shows that appeal to audiences globally.”
