Barack and Michelle Obama have inked a multi-year deal with Netflix! 

The Obamas "have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features," the streaming service announced Monday afternoon.

“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,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

In March, The New York Times first reported the Obama family was in  “advanced negotiations” to produce a series of shows for Netflix.

It's safe to say many look forward to seeing the content that the pair produces on Netflix.
