Maybe a true crime spy show of some sort would be a good place to start. https://t.co/yFlBspxKpq

Surprised they didn't sign with @YouTube Red. They brought more attention to obscure YouTube videos than anybody in American history.

We’re gonna need a bigger vomit bucket:
The Obamas have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series with the streaming giant, Netflix announced on Monday. The pair will produce a diverse mix of content, including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features under their Higher Ground Productions banner.
“One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience,” said President Obama in a statement. “That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.”
The former first lady added in her own statement: “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. Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership.”
Their production company is called “Higher Ground”? Of course it is.
