The Obama’s are coming into your living room!

Reports say that former President Barack Obama is in “advanced” negotiations to bring some brand new shows to Netflix.

According to the New York Times:

Under terms of a proposed deal, which is not yet final, Netflix would pay Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, for exclusive content that would be available only on the streaming service, which has nearly 118 million subscribers around the world. The number of episodes and the formats for the shows have not been decided.

Mr. Obama does not intend to use his Netflix shows to directly respond to President Trump or conservative critics, according to people familiar with discussions about the programming. They said the Obamas had talked about producing shows that highlight inspirational stories.

Obama has been out of the limelight mostly since leaving office in 2017. His last public appearance was an interview with David Letterman.

Netflix has been on a roll lately brings a string of high profile shows and comedy shows to their platform.
