Oprah Winfrey is spilling a few details on her and pal Prince Harry's anticipated mental health documentary.

The TV star and Dr. Bruce Perry appeared on the May 4 episode of The Drew Barrymore Show to talk about their trauma-focused book when she shared the update.

"I want to just say that Dr. Perry and I have also, for the past two years, along with Prince Harry and Apple, we’ve been working on this mental health series that’s coming out in May on Apple," she noted.

"Our mental well-being, our mental health, being able to rise to the best of yourself, is part of my goal in life," Winfrey continued. "And now as I get to spend my days doing exactly what I want to do, I still continue to be the kind of person who wants to use my life in order to help other people have the best of theirs."

Harry and Meghan Markle — who sat down with Winfrey in March for their explosive tell-all — were named as "partners, co-creators and executive producers" of the project when they made the announcement last year.

"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," a statement on the pair's now defunct Instagram account reads.

"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," the message continued.

The post also included a quote from Harry, who took a job with mental health startup Better Up earlier this year. 

"I truly believe that good mental health - mental fitness - is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self," he explained. "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," Harry concluded. "I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”
