NEW YORK (AP) — Barack and Michelle Obama are getting into the television business with Monday’s announcement that they had signed a multi-year deal with Netflix.
The former president and first lady have formed their own production company, Higher Ground Productions, for the material. In announcing a deal that had been rumored since March, Netflix offered no specifics on what shows they would make.
Netflix said the Obamas would make “a diverse mix of content,” potentially including scripted and unscripted series, documentaries or features.
