The former President of the United States could soon be a producer. 

According to reports, Barack and former First Lady Michelle are in 'advanced talks' with Netflix about a brand new series. 

Eric Schultz, senior adviser to Barack said 'President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire. Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better.'

The New York Times report that they've talked about producing shows that specialise in highlighting important stories. 

The number of episodes and format is yet to be decided. 

Both Barack and Michelle are currently in the middle of writing their memoirs and Barack has been travelling around the world delivering speeches since January 2017.
