Reports say former US President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are in negotiations with Netflix about producing a series of shows for the online streaming giant.
The New York Times, citing people familiar with the matter, reports that the former first couple would provide Netflix with exclusive content, with the format and number of shows yet to be determined.
Netflix declined to comment.
As the world’s leading on-demand internet television service, Netflix would offer Obama a global platform to delve into topics that marked his presidency, such as health care, immigration, foreign policy, and fighting climate change.
His wife, Michelle, would also have a stage to explore subjects she was passionate about while first lady, such as nutrition.
The format could include talk-show-style or documentary productions. Obama does not plan to use shows to respond directly to President Donald Trump or other critics, but instead to showcase inspirational stories, according to the Times.
Netflix is available in some 200 markets worldwide and produces programs in several languages.
