Barack and Michelle Obama to produce series for Netflix


Barack and Michelle Obama left the luminaries of the White House and political life for the Netflix set.

On Monday, the streaming service said in a tweet that the former president and the former first lady of the United States join Netflix as producers of series and documentaries. Netflix did not give details of the scripts or the release of this content, making it clear that it is a recent fix.

According to The New York Times , the Obama created Higher Ground Productions, a company that will be explicitly dedicated to producing content for Netflix. The content created by the Obamas and their study will be related to problems and issues that Barack Obama addressed during his eight years as president of the United States, according to the Times .

"Barack and Michelle Obama are among the most respected people and most recognized public figures and have a privileged position to find new stories of people who make a difference in their communities and seek to improve the world," said Ted Sarandos, Content Director at Netflix to the Times . "We are happy that they have chosen Netflix as the home of their formidable stories."

The arrival of the Obama to Netflix will be a blow to Amazon and Apple, two companies that supposedly also wanted to do content in the hands of the Obama. Since March, the Times itself  reported that Obama would produce content for Netflix .
