The Obamas Sign a deal with Netflix

Now that they are no longer in the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama will try their hand in entertainment as they have signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. According to reports, they will be producing television shows for the streaming service. 

The former President and First Lady created a production company called, “Higher Ground Productions,” which will produce content for the streaming service. A press release from Netflix said the Obamas will produce “scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features” that highlight issues the former president pursued during his administration.


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
