Barack Obama in negotiations to create Netflix series Obama in talks to create shows for Netflix

Basically every detail you'd want to know about the possible agreement remains unanswered, including queries about how much the former first family's compensation will be and whether the production would take the shape of a mini-series or documentary, or perhaps one-on-one interviews or live footage of the former president playing basketball with interesting guests.

Former US president Barack Obama is in negotiations with Netflix about producing a series of shows for the online streaming giant, according to US media reports. It said a deal has not yet been struck between the Obamas and Netflix.

"Under terms of a proposed deal, which is not yet final, Netflix would pay Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, for exclusive content that would be available only on the streaming service, which has almost 118 million subscribers around the world".

Netflix would offer Obama a global platform to delve into topics that marked his presidency, such as healthcare, immigration, foreign policy, and fighting climate change. They're working on a deal which would see the Obamas providing the service with multiple original TV shows for programming. Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better.

A Netflix spokesman declined to comment to media organizations.

In addition to Netflix, executives from Apple Inc and Amazon.com Inc have also expressed interest in talking to Obama about content deals, according to NYT. And with good reason, Netflix now boasts upwards of 118 million subscribers and is undeniably the 800-pound gorilla in the streaming space.

Schultz said the couple continues to explore new ways to help others share their stories.
