Obama Reportedly In Talks With Netflix

March 9, 2018

According to a report in the New York Times, former President Obama is in talks to bring content to Netflix.

After his departure from the White House, Obama has been searching for a platform to reach audiences. 

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, a senior adviser to the former president, told the New York Times. “Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”

Though he has taken a low profile since leaving office, in his few public appearances Obama has expressed his dislike of the fractured and politicized media environment.
