Netflix to Feature New Content From the Obamas
In a move that I am sure will in no way be interpreted politically, streaming giant Netflix announced today that it will partner with Michelle and Barack Obama to create and showcase new content from the former first couple. According to CNN, the deal would bring the unspecified content into homes by 2019 earliest.
There are few details at this time, but reportedly the deal would put the couple both in front of and behind the camera. According to a statement released by the former President and First Lady, the couple wants to use the "power of storytelling" to promote common values and will produce all of the content through a new company formed just for this venture called Higher Ground Productions. One theory, put forth by the New York Times, on subject matter would place the former President as a moderator presiding over debates about controversial topics that related to his time in the White House.
So far, timelines and financial details have not been released.
