Former President Barack Obama is in talks with Netflix to produce original television programming.
The idea, reported by The New York Times, if it comes to fruition, could give the former president a broad platform.
Netflix has about 118 million subscribers worldwide.
Terms of the deal, which hasn’t been finalized, haven’t been disclosed.
The Times reported that one idea might have Obama moderating discussions of public policy.
“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.”
