If you’ve been wishing you had a little extra spending money every month, and can’t fathom the idea of seeing the endless promotions for America’s favorite socialist couple on Netflix, maybe now is the perfect time to cut the cord. If you feel like your current cable provider is already providing you with enough propaganda channels, it might be a good time to take a stand and say, “No thank you!” to Netflix’s newest, leftist-propaganda promotion of America’s most angry, and divisive first couple, Michelle and Barry Soetoro…aka Barack Obama.
Netflix Inc. NFLX 2.36% signed former U.S. President Barack Obama and the former first lady, Michelle Obama, to a multiyear deal to produce shows and documentaries for the streaming platform.
Netflix announced Monday that the arrangement with the Obamas had been completed, giving the couple leeway to produce everything from scripted television shows to unscripted shows to documentary series and features. Terms weren’t disclosed.
The deal will give Mr. Obama an international platform, reaching Netflix’s 125 million streaming members around the world. While writing books and going on speaking tours have been commonplace for past presidents, the wide-ranging media deal is unique.
The Obamas have established Higher Ground Productions to create content for Netflix.
Mrs. Obama said the streaming service is the “natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share.”
Netflix has become a force in media, increasingly securing exclusive deals with top-tier talent in recent years. Earlier this year, Netflix signed producer Ryan Murphy to a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal to create content exclusively for the service, and last year the service lured “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes away from ABC. – Wall Street Journal
