The Obama's want to continue spreading their messages to the world.
As Netflix continues to dominate the original programming market, they may have found the most distinguished content creators to join their network: Barack and Michelle Obama. The former American President and former First Lady have continued to spread positivity and warmth after their departure from the White House. They are currently in talks with Netflix to create original programming for the streaming service.
The Obama family have been keeping in touch with their fellow citizens through social media and their public appearances. However a Netflix deal would extend their reach to nearly 118 million subscribers. No terms have been settled upon as of yet, but it's said that the deal will adhere to positive, uplifting stories rather than addressing Donald Trump's actions as President. A senior advisor to Barack Obama said, "President and Mrs. Obama have always believed 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."
The details of the possible deal are unknown, but Netflix won't want to miss the opportunity to secure the Obama family as partners. There's a world of possibilities for Barack and Michelle, and we all want to see their creative pursuits explored further.
