Former US President Barack Obama and his mother Michelle are in talks to furnish shows for Netflix, according to a New York Times.

The integrate would make disdainful calm for a US streaming site focused on fortifying stories, a paper suggested.

If confirmed, a understanding would give a tellurian height for a Obamas, bypassing mainstream US media such as Fox News.

Netflix told a BBC it had no criticism to make about a reports.


Eric Schultz, a comparison confidant to a former president, did not endorse a skeleton though pronounced they would make sense.

“President and Mrs Obama have always believed in a energy of storytelling to inspire,” he told a paper.

“Throughout their lives, they have carried adult stories of people whose efforts to make a disproportion are sensitively changing a universe for a better. As they cruise their destiny personal plans, they continue to try new ways to assistance others tell and share their stories.”

The New York Times pronounced one probable uncover thought was for Mr Obama to assuage debates on issues such as health care, meridian change and immigration- all of that dominated his 8 years in a White House.

But a paper pronounced there were no skeleton to use a shows to conflict regressive critics or Donald Trump.

The streaming service’s brew of strange drama, films and other programming has valid renouned globally, with subscriber numbers reaching scarcely 118 million during a finish of 2017.

It is misleading how most a Obamas will be paid if a understanding is struck.

Mr Obama already connects directly to an assembly by amicable media. He has has some-more than 100 million chatter supporters and his Facebook page has been favourite by 55 million users.
