For months there has been low murmurs and social media gossip about Barack and Michele Obama being in talks to do something with Netflix. The only question remaining unanswered was, what that something was. Today, as Netflix announced that the former first lady and president of the United States has inked a multi-year deal with the company, the question as to what the Obamas will be producing has been made a little more clear.




CNBC (@CNBC) reports, the deal the Obamas signed with Netflix may or may not include scripted and unscripted series, films, documentaries, and features. The content will be produced by Higher Ground Productions.




“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience. That’s why Michele and I are so excited to partner with Netflix. We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the world.” President Obama said in a statement.




During their time in the White House the Obamas made many, what I believe to be, long-lasting friendships and relationships with many people. Some people just have that “it” factor that attracts people to them. The Obamas has it, inside or outside of the White House. Like Barack said “people from all walks of life”, including actors, musicians, athletes, and many many more. I for one, am excited to see what type of movies and shows they will be bringing to Netflix. We should be in for some really good tv time coming up soon! I can’t wait!



Barrack Obama and Netflix are allegedly in talks. A source labeled the talks as a possible “production partnership” deal. What does a production partnership mean exactly? Nobody really knows yet. CNN (@cnn) reported that the production partnership could mean Obama might appear on camera as the moderator of a new Netflix series. It could also mean Obama could be coming on as a producer of the show, and will not make an on-camera appearance. It could also mean that he might do both. Either way, Netflix and Barack Obama are in talks to do something, and you can already feel the excitement in the air. Even though none of us really know exactly what this will be. Many of us are simply happy to have the opportunity to see Barack Obama again. I don’t know about you, but just his mere presence gives me a feeling of stability in the Country that I haven’t felt since January of 2017.




CNN also reported that if the talks are successful, Barack and Michele Obama will both be involved in the series or show on Netflix.
