Former president and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama may be bringing a series of shows to Netflix, according to the New York Times.

On Thursday, the paper revealed that the Obamas are in “advanced negotiations” with the streaming giant to bring shows that cover topics that were important to him during his presidency exclusively to the platform.

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, a senior adviser to the former president, told the Times. “Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”

The shows are supposed to be inspirational and not be anything critical of President Donald Trump, according to the report.

No word on how much the Obamas will be paid for this deal with Netflix, but their post-White House plans have consisted of the launch of the Obama Foundation and a massive $65 million book deal.

Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, will be released in November.
