Netflix has made a deal with the Obama family to produce series and movies for the streaming service.

“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” former president Barack Obama said in a statement.

He and Michelle said they hope to inspire people to make their voices heard.

“Barack and I have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others,” Michelle Obama said in a statement.

According to media reports, Netflix is making an effort to secure the entertainment industry’s best producers. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement that the Obama family is among the world’s most respected and highly recognized public figures, which means any Netflix series they produce will be extremely popular.

Any programs put out will not involve politics but instead their everyday lives. This gives us insight on who the Obama’s are outside of the White House. It’s safe to say we can see these series on Netflix within the next year.
