THE OBAMAS REVEAL THE SHOWS AND FILMS THEY'RE WORKING ON


Eleven months after striking a deal with Netflix, the Obamas have a slate of programming.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s new production company, Higher Ground Productions, on Tuesday announced seven projects that are in the works for Netflix, including several documentaries and a movie about Frederick Douglass.

The former president and first lady struck a multiyear production deal in 2018 to produce shows and films for the streaming service.

With the deal, the Obamas will be able to reach 148 million paying subscribers, and they have said their production company will cover a wide spectrum of programming. But there is something they apparently have no interest in: mounting an attack on the current presidential administration.

The Obamas are intent on avoiding any material that could inflame tensions at a red-hot political moment, particularly as the 2020 presidential election begins to ramp up.
