Barack And Michelle Obama Just Signed a Multiyear Agreement With Netflix

Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Former First Lady Michelle Obama, are getting into the movie-making business, teaming up with Netflix on a multiyear deal, the streaming movie giant announced Monday.

“President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features,” the company in a Monday tweet.

In his last two years in office, Obama hosted a film festival at the White House and expressed an appreciation for big-screen projects.

“That’s a media that connects us with people and stories we might otherwise never know,” Obama said of filmmaking in 2016. “And it puts us in the shoes of people potentially on the other side of the world or the neighborhood very different than the one we grew up in.”

A Netflix spokeswoman did not respond to a request for additional comments about the deal.
