Barack and Michelle Obama to produce content for Netflix

22 May 2018

Former U.S. President Barack Obama and wife Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement with Netflix Inc to produce films and series, the company said yesterday. Under the name Higher Ground Productions, the Obamas have the options to produce scripted and unscripted series, documentaries and feature films, Netflix said in a statement.

The agreement with Netflix will give the Obamas a voice outside of the traditional public speaking, books and charity work that recent ex-presidents have relied on.
