Barack Obama is discussing the terms to produce a series of shows with Netflix, according to The New York Times and CNN. The details of the shows have not yet been finalized, but would provide the former president and his wife, Michelle, with a platform to communicate with Netflix's 117 million global subscribers.
The Times suggests that a show idea could cause President Obama to moderate conversations about key issues of his presidency, while another could involve Michelle focusing on issues she attacked during her time as First Lady. The shows are unlikely to target President Trump directly, according to Times sources; rather, the Obamas prefer to "highlight inspiring stories".
President Obama is no stranger to Netflix. He recently appeared on the platform as the first subject in David Letterman's new interview series, My Next Guest Needs no Introduction, and reportedly has a close relationship with CEO Reed Hastings.
