According to media reports in the USA, the former American president is in advanced negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of high-profile shows.

Netflix may have just secured the TV coup of the century following reports that the streaming service is in talks with the Obamas to produce a series of high-profile shows.

Schultz said the couple continues to explore new ways to help others share their stories. The exact format of the series or number of episodes has not yet been confirmed.

The Netflix deal would provide the Obamas with another platform, one that reaches almost 118 million subscribers around the world.

You could soon be seeing more of Barack Obama again. The company has made successful strides into creating original content within recent years, ranging from House of Cards and Orange is the New Black to Narcos and Stranger Things.

Could the Obamas be headed to Netflix in the future?

One idea being floated is a pair of panel discussion shows moderated by Barack and Michelle.

A Netflix spokesman declined to comment on Thursday. Other rumors suggest the first lady will talk about issues like healthy nutrition and other causes for which she advocated during Obama's presidency.

Obama told reporters shortly after the 2016 presidential election the new media landscape made it possible for people to ignore facts.

The former president and first lady of the United States are in advanced negotiations with streaming service, according to reports.

But Mr Obama has connections to Netflix: his ambassador to the Bahamas - Nicole A Avant - is married to Netflix's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos.
