According to the New York Times, the streaming service is in “advanced negotiations” with Barack about a project in which he and Michelle would use the platform to communicate with the public beyond their social media pages about inspirational stories (and not ones that are direct responses to the Trump administration).
There are reportedly already ideas about the form of the shows and what they would cover: In one, the Times reports, “Mr. Obama could moderate conversations on topics that dominated his presidency.” And another could “feature Mrs. Obama on topics, like nutrition, that she championed in the White House.” Overall, the power couple wants the project to be something positive—AKA exactly what the world needs right now.
“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 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.”
Whatever they decide on, binge-watchers will undoubtedly welcome one of America’s forever favorite families onto their screens and into their lives again.
