Obamas Sign Deal with Netflix

So this is a pretty good “get” for Netflix’s original content team. Former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama have signed a multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce films and shows. The deal, which hasn’t yielded any specific titles or genres yet, includes scripted and unscripted shows, along with docs and feature-length movies.

The former president had the following to say:

“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience . . . That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

 Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos was similarly excited about the deal, saying that the Obamas “are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better.”
A very political move on the part of Netflix. An astute one? Weigh in with your opinions in the comments.
