Netflix is in talks with former President Barack Obama for a new series that will be exclusive to the streaming video service.

Although the length and format for the series has yet to be decided, The New York Times reports that the deal would have Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, provide content that would only be available on Netflix.

Sources close to the deal indicate that the series might focus on inspirational stories or feature moderated discussions of the topics that were highlights of the Obamas’ time in the White House.

The report indicates that some episodes could feature conversations on health care or voting rights moderated by Barack Obama, while Michelle Obama might moderate a show focusing on nutrition, for example.

Other potential show ideas rumored for the deal include documentaries or other projects endorsed by and possibly introduced by the Obamas.

According to the report, Netflix isn’t the only streaming content provider to pursue a collaboration with the Obamas.
