There has been no word regarding the release date of any of the Obamas' Netflix work, however, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos is optimistic about the partnership: “Barack and Michelle Obama are among the world’s most respected and highly-recognized public figures and are uniquely positioned to discover and highlight stories of people who make a difference in their communities and strive to change the world for the better."
