The Obamas are coming to Netflix.

From The Hill:

The Obamas are getting into the movie-making business, teaming up with Netflix on a multiyear deal.

Netflix announced the partnership in a Monday tweet.

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, an Obama senior adviser, told the paper at the time.

More from CNBC:

Obama previously appeared on Netflix’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.”

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement the Obamas “are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better.” A New York Times report in March said Obama’s projects are not intended to address President Donald Trump or conservatives. Instead, it would focus on inspirational content.

Some of the unscripted, reality-style shows will reportedly feature both Barack and Michelle.

Sounds awful.
