Obama in talks to produce shows for Netflix

  • Posted 2 months Ago

Former U.S. president Barack Obama is in talks with TV streaming giant Netflix to produce new original content.

As The New York Times reports, Obama is in "advanced negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of high-profile shows", and although details are thin on the ground, one potential series is said to be a series which sees Obama highlighting inspirational stories, and another would see him moderating discussions on topics which dominated his presidency - like health care, immigration, and climate change.

Former first lady Michelle Obama is also in talks and would create content as a part of any deal.

The Obamas already have huge following on social media, but any deal with Netflix would give them access to its 118 million subscribers around the world.
