Barack & Michelle Obama are staying busy with the Netflix production team after leaving the white.
Netflix announced on Monday, May 21, that former first family of the United States Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have signed a multi-year deal to produce TV shows and movies.
The streaming service said in a press release that the former president, 56, and the former first lady, 54, will produce a “diverse mix of content” — including potential scripted and unscripted series, docuseries, documentaries and other full-length features — under their new company, Higher Ground Productions.
Michelle said, “Barack and I have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others. Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership.”
