Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have inked a multi-year deal with Netflix, the streaming service announced Monday.
In a tweet, Netflix said that the Obamas will produce films and series “potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.”
The former president issued a statement saying “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 entire world.”
Since leaving office in January 2017, the Obamas have taken a number of vacations, but have also done work with their Obama Foundation and the Barack Obama Presidential Center.
