Barack and Michelle Obama to make TV and films for Netflix

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are teaming up with Netflix to produce films and TV shows.

"Mrs Obama said:"Barack and I have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire us, to make us think differently about the world around us, and to help us open our minds and hearts to others.
