Barack and Michelle Obama are in talks with Netflix to do a "series of high-profile shows" on the platform, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: Per the Times, these shows aren't intended "to directly respond to President Trump or conservative critics," but signal that President Obama "intends to remain engaged in the nation's civic business."
