Barack and Michelle Obama to Produce Films for Netflix

Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama just inked “a multi-year agreement” with Netflix to produce an unlimited amount of movies and television shows for the streaming service, the company announced Monday.

The two sides had been in talks for months over a possible partnership. Netflix announced the deal Monday:

The New York Times reported earlier this year that the shows would prominently feature the former president and first lady:

In one possible show idea, Mr. Obama could moderate conversations on topics that dominated his presidency — health care, voting rights, immigration, foreign policy, climate change — and that have continued to divide a polarized American electorate during President Trump’s time in office.

Another program could feature Mrs. Obama on topics, like nutrition, that she championed in the White House. The former president and first lady could also lend their brand — and their endorsement — to documentaries or fictional programming on Netflix that align with their beliefs and values.

It won’t be Barack Obama’s first appearance on Netflix. David Letterman interviewed Obama for his Netflix show in January 2018.
