Obamas ink producing deal with Netflix

netflix

Another reason I will never subscribe to Netflix.

From Hollywood Reporter: President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are officially getting into business with Netflix.

The Obamas have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series with the streaming giant, Netflix announced on Monday. The pair will produce a diverse mix of content, including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features under their Higher Ground Productions banner.

“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” said President Obama in a statement. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”

The former first lady added in her own statement: “Barack and I have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others. Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership.”

The unprecedented deal is Obama’s first big move after exiting the White House in 2017. While previous former presidents have limited their post-White House pacts to book deals, the deal is the latest talent feat for Netflix as the streamer continues to expand its unscripted and informational original programming. Netflix’s recent deal with mega-producer Ryan Murphy is said to be worth as much as $300 million.

The Obamas also have a $65 million deal with Penguin Random House to publish individual books.

Barack and Michelle Obama are among the world’s most respected and highly recognized public figures and are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. “We are incredibly proud they have chosen to make Netflix the home for their formidable storytelling abilities.”

    Wow! The Obamas’ influence on American society, and the larger world, was catastrophic! And now Netflix wants to make the influential again? I guess we know where Netflix’s political money went to in the last 10+ years.

    Here’s what Wikipedia says:

    Ted Sarandos, Netflix CEO

    Philanthropy
    Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, held a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign in Southern California in 2009, and raised over $700,000 for the Democratic candidate.

    Personal life
    In 2009, Sarandos married former United States Ambassador to the Bahamas (2009-2011), Nicole Avant, the daughter of former Motown Chairman Clarence Avant…
    Sarandos has said he is Catholic.

  7. I pay exactly $7.98 a Month, I hardly ever use it, but I might stick around just so I can give these productions a ThumbsDown, that alone will be worth $7.98. They will “highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better”. I’ll bet none of these people will be Caucasian…like barry’s mom was, they never seemed to care about White Christians to much, you know, the “bitter clingers”. I would 86 Netflix in a heartbeat, almost have a few times because sometimes I go a year without using it, but I’m curious, and want to keep an eye on my enemy. I’ll keep you all Posted on the criminals activity! (Spell Check just made me capitalize Netflix)!!!

  11. Well, WHY WOULDN’T THEY get an offer from Netflix? Obama’s mother was a CIA asset and so is he. The CIA and Holy Wood are 2 faces of the same coin.
    Like I’ve said; they don’t need your money or an audience…..they’ve got all the money they need. They can print it.
    UNPLUG people. Don’t let ((them)) into your brain.

  13. Isn’t there a rule that prohibits retired lawmakers from working for lobbying firms for so many years after they’ve been ousted from office?

    Why not create a similar rule for ex-presidents and their families? Talking about whoring for money, not advocating/volunteering for charity, per se…

    They’re elected (or NOT), and term-limited for a REASON, part of which is to limit the effects of their influence on American life & culture. We should consider putting laws into effect to give those ideas some teeth.

    And if they DO profit personally from their prior office titles, then a LARGE chunk of that change should go back to the American people… those that DIDN’T vote them into office. Give them a dis-incentive to perpetuate their pabulum. Think of how the RNC would have benefited from the Clintons’ blathering at fundraisers and campus events…

  14. The Obongos and Netflix sure is going to be a dream come true for whatever intentions these two obscure characters have up their sleeve, and when it’s all over their coffers will be spilling over with money and Netfllix will be Net-f…..cked. Mustafa really knows how to do it, he’ll put to work the leftist propaganda and the spread of globalism to his heart’s content as well as Michael and homosexuality, betcha they’ll profit from a couple of hard core movies featuring them too.

  17. They can tell stories all right. “I was born in the US.” “I’m not a Muslim.” ” I love the United States of America.” “I’m not cashing in like all those other lobbyist types. I waited until I left office to start looting.” “I didn’t tell the FBI to start trying to screw Trump over.”. I think I may vomit because people will actually watch whatever shit they feed them. “First guest on my new Baracks Party House show!! Hilary Clinton and her very personal assistant Huma!! Will they come out?? Watch and see!!”. Hurl.

    • Steven, speaking of weaponized entertainment, I just had a brainstorm. I thought of a way to fund the border wall, televise the trials and executions of obama and hillary for treason on Pay Per View, $100 a subscription, it’l take in a billion easy! $50 each for clapper, brennen, abadine, reno, waters, feinstein, mueller, lerner, holder, weiner, swallwell, shiff, rice, lynch, rosenstein, comey, $25 each for the awan bros./strzok & page. Or, we could bundle it all into the ‘Coup d’état Extravaganza’ for $2,500.

  23. All the braindead zombies (leftwingers) will love watching our best gay muslim president in American history make shows about how wonderful it is to be neutered, get a tattoo on you face and a bone in your nose.
    Who knows maybe he will get a sex change and run for president again as a woman. Like maybe he does not think term limits apply if he runs as a woman. I can see it now Barry becomes Barbara. Babs the greatest “female” muslim president. Don’t you know the worlds muslims will love the new Babs? The Iranians will be waiting to unload the billions in unmarked bills flying in.
    Obamba said he is a christian. For Islamic translation see TAQIYYAH.

Well Hell….my school district internet Nazi eliminated access to my OWN use of my OWN private Netflix account through my school computer ( for which I used access to the History Channel movies and series on the American Presidents for those times I had to teach US History as a part of my assignment). I suppose NOW that Barack Hussein Obama is associated with it…I might be able to access JUST HIS and Michael’s Netfllix series……..Oh Joy…can not wait (NOT!).

  25. “People Calling For Obama’s Immediate Arrest After He Was Caught Breaking Federal Law Overseas”

    “At the beginning of the year, Obama was cut back down to size and is now a regular citizen which has evidently not sat well with the egomaniac. For the past year, Obama has done his best to undermine Trump by taking jabs at him on everything from his policies to comparing him to Hitler. Not only has Obama been vocal about his disdain for President Trump but he also has set up residence just a few miles away from the White House.

    Over the past year, Obama has been doing all that he can to undermine President Trump’s administration, whether it was when Obama followed Trump overseas during his first trip as president or the G20 Summit meeting in Germany Obama has always been close behind.

    Now, all of those are horrible offenses, but none could honestly be as bad as what Obama was just caught doing overseas earlier this year.

    Here is more from Bloomberg:
    [Read the details at the link]

    It is horrific that Obama is traveling the world bashing the president of the United States without any repercussions, but it can be stopped.”
