The first African-American president of the United States is reportedly in talks with the online television and video service for a deal to stream "inspirational stories" produced by the couple, the New York Timesreports.
The New York Times reported that Obama doesn't intend to use his Netflix shows to respond directly to President Donald Trump or conservative critics. And as if he wasn't a big enough "get", his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, appears to be in on the project, too.
Obama senior adviser Eric Schultz, in a statement provided toThe Associated Press, said the Obamas believe in the power of storytelling to inspire.
According to reports, Netflix is proposing for Barack and Michelle to be part of creating content that would be exclusive to the SVOD site.
