Netflix inks multi-year production agreement with the Obamas  

The 44th President and First Lady are getting into the entertainment business. According to an announcement by Netflix's Twitter account Monday morning, "President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama 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."

Specifics on the deal remain scarce but the agreement itself is unprecedented. While former presidents invariably produce memoirs and autobiographies after leaving office, signing on with one of the largest television and film studios on the planet to produce multiple series is unheard of. After keeping largely to themselves following the 2016 election, could this announcement signal the Obamas' return to the spotlight?

The D.C. Circuit Court ruling was the latest to counter efforts under President Donald Trump, a Republican, to delay environmental regulations introduced by former President Barack Obama, a Democrat. The court ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to implement the Chemical Disaster Rule, saying the agency did not have authority to delay the rule for 20 months. The EPA cannot delay the rule "by invoking general rulemaking authority under a different statutory provision," of federal clean air law, the court said in the ruling.
