New details about Barack and Michelle Obama's upcoming Netflix projects revealed

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos attended a Vanity Fair event to share more details about the projects that Barack and Michelle Obama are planning to create with the streaming giant.

The former POTUS and FLOTUS signed a multimillion-dollar production deal with Netflix a couple of months ago, but the details about their collaboration were not immediately revealed. After a lot of speculation, Ted clarified a few things.

He revealed that the Obamas are focused on both film and television, as well as fiction and non-fiction projects. Ted added that they are planning to do programming and storytelling related to what they did during Barack’s presidency.

NO POLITICS

Even though there was a lot of politics during the former POTUS’ period in the White House, Ted set clear that they would not get into politics as they want to cover sports, lifestyle, and nutrition.
