Netflix Strikes Production Deal with Michelle and Barack Obama

Since the election, the Obama family has understandably become less active. The most incredible moment to encapsulate this new time is Barack Obama gleefully water skiing.

This week, Michelle and Barack have announced their next creative venture: Higher Ground Productions. The company has partnered with Netflix to produce several types of content for the streaming service.

Based on the New York Times report, the former president does not plan on using the deal to wage war on the current administration. Instead, it is to “highlight issues and themes the president pursued during his eight years in office.”

The Obamas are set to produce scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features. No industry names are connected with Higher Ground Productions currently.

We can only hope that the first production is a full length documentary on the water skiing trip.
