Back in 2018 Barack and Michelle made a deal to produce fiction and non-fiction content for adults and children, including documentaries, dramas that all focus on “celebrating the human spirit through struggles and triumph.”
Netflix announce that in 2020 we would get some new titles from Spike Lee and The Obamas.
The next documentary will be about a teenage summer camp in the 1970s for disabled teenagers titled “Crip Camp”, in which The Obamas are the executive producers.
Another hotly anticipated project under the High Learner banner includes a biopic about Frederick Douglass based on David W. Blight’s Pulitzer-winning book.
Meanwhile, Spike Lee’s partnership with Netflix continues with the release of Da 5 Bloods starring Chadwick Boseman. The tale follows “four African American vets who return to Vietnam seeking their squad leader’s remains and the promise of buried treasure,” per the official synopsis.
