Barack and Michelle Obama to launch new TV shows on Netflix

Barack and Michelle Obama

News of the pending deal follows several big tie-ups between Netflix and some Hollywood heavy-hitters - including a $100 million agreement with Scandal and Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, and a $300 million dollar, five-year deal with Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy.

Jill Abramson, 63, the former executive editor for The New York Times from 2011 to 2014, claimed she keeps a therapy doll of the 44th president to get her through the Trump Administration, she wrote in The Guardian Mar. 7th.

Netflix is staying mum about the negotiations, as is Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill, who declined to comment about the report.

The type of content that the Obamas are expected to bring to the streaming service hasn't been announced yet in terms of the number of series' or episodes.

Former US president Barack Obama is in advanced talks with Netflix Inc to produce a series of high-profile shows, the New York Times reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

On Friday, Drake did just that as the Raptors hosted the scorching hot Houston Rockets on the 4th annual "Drake Night". Toronto extended that defensive effort into the second, holding Houston to a season-low 43 points in the first half.

One idea would feature Michelle Obama discussing topics like nutrition.

A deal between Netflix and the Obamas would be huge for the streaming service.

Under the terms of a proposed deal, Netflix will pay former United States president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama for exclusive content on the video streaming service. Although the move might seem controversial in the United States, Michelle and Barack Obama are still very well-liked and respected internationally.

It is not yet known how much money the Obamas will receive should they reach a deal with the streaming giant, but it is not thought Barack would want to use the shows as a platform to air his views about current US President Donald Trump.
