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?
