Obamas Sign Netflix Deal

Former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama have just signed a multi year deal with Netflix!

The news was announced Monday and the two are set to produce series, documentaries and movies.

“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,” said Barack Obama.

“That’s why Michelle 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 entire world.”

Michelle then added, “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” she continued.

As of yet there’s no word on what the material will be about, but here’s what we do know!

The projects are being produced by the Obama’s production company Higher Ground Productions.  Netflix says it’ll deliver a “diverse mix of content.”

A source close to the deal reportedly told the Associated Press no content will be available until 2019.
