In March, The New York Times said the Obamas were in “advanced negotiations” with Netflix, and that the projects for the streaming service would likely highlight inspirational stories more than political programming.

President Obama appears on Netflix in David Letterman’s interview show, My Guest Needs No Introduction.

Both Obamas have book projects in the works.
