Get ready to Netflix and chill — with Obama.

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, reportedly are in advance talks to produce a series of exclusive programs on Netflix that will be available to the streaming service’s nearly 118 million subscribers.

The deal has not yet been finalized and both the format and number of episodes are under discussion, the New York Times said Thursday.

 

But people close to the negotiations said the program would not be a direct rebuttal of President Trump’s agenda or Obama’s other conservative critics.

“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.”

Although details about the proposed show were scant, the development showed Obama’s willingness to further engage with the public as his popularity continues to rise after his two terms in the White House.
