Report: Obama in Talks With Netflix For a Show

Former President Barack Obama is reportedly engaged in “advanced” talks with Netflix over a possible series of shows on the popular platform. The New York Times reports that the former commander-in-chief would not use the opportunity to “directly respond to President Trump or conservative critics,” but rather focus on “inspirational stories.” Eric Schultz, a top adviser to Obama, said the former first couple wants to “explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”
