Obama in talks with Netflix to produce content

Former US President Barack Obama is in advanced negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform following his departure from the White House.
 
Under terms of a proposed deal, which is not yet final, Netflix would pay Mr. Obama and his wife, Michelle, for exclusive content that would be available only on the streaming service, which has almost 118 million subscribers around the world. 
 
The number of episodes and the formats for the shows have not been decided.
 
Several people familiar with the Netflix discussions said that executives from Apple and Amazon, which have their own streaming services, have also expressed interest in talking with Mr. Obama about content deals.
