Former president Barack Obama are in advanced negotiations to produce Netflix series of high profile shows. Netflix has over 118 million subscribers and Barack plans to use that platform to reach his audience.
The Obamas plan to create stories that inspire people and they always believed in the power of storytelling.
It was mentioned that Barack does not plan to create content that will respond directly to current President Trump. However Netflix will give the Obamas an unfiltered method of communication with the public similar to his audience he already reaches via social media.
Apple and Amazon have both expressed interest in talking with Mr. Obama about content deals.
This deal between the Obamas and Netflix could be a modern twist on an approach that former politicians have attempted in the past.
