Is there anything Barack and Michelle Obama can’t do?
The couple is currently in “advanced negotiations” to produce and create a series of new shows for Netflix.
According to The New York Times, “Netflix and the deal would pay him and his wife, former first lady Michelle Obama, for Netflix-only “exclusive content” that would be available to subscribers of the digital streaming service. Netflix has about 118 million subscribers globally. It was not immediately clear how many shows or episodes would be ordered nor how much the Obama’s would be paid.”
Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, Eric Schultz shared:
“President and Mrs. Obama have always in the power of storytelling to inspire. Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”
