Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are joining Netflix!

The former Commander In Chief and his wife have inked a production deal with the streaming company for a multi-year agreement to produce films, scripted series, documentaries, docu-series, and features.

Cinema Blend caught up with Obama to get his thoughts on why he’s jumping from politics to entertainment.

We want to tell stories. This [Netflix deal] becomes a platform. We are interested in lifting people up and identifying people doing amazing work. We did this in the White House. For instance, the very first time Lin-Manuel Miranda performed the first song in Hamilton was at the White House at a poetry slam we did.

This deal will give the former first couple a platform that reaches 118 million subscribers from around the world and their focus will be on stories of inspiration.
