Honorary Members of the Media, Barack and Michelle Obama, Become Official Members of the Media with Netflix Production Deal

Netflix announced today that former President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have struck a "storytelling partnership" with the video-on-demand service that will unfold in front of and behind the camera.

...

The agreement with the Obamas is a "multi-year" pact, the company said, "to produce films and series" with the company.

"The Obamas will produce a diverse mix of content, including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features," the company said.

Yeah I'm going to cancel Netflix this month.

Meanwhile, HBO is running an absurdly fawning "documentary" about Obama's last year in office-- though I don't think they're going to highlight all the spying and lawbreaking.

Christian Toto quotes some of the cringiest wet-panties reviews, including this one:

The biggest knee slapper comes courtesy of New York Magazine via Vulture.com. Critic David Edelstein throws any pretense of objectivity to the wind in his final thoughts.

Who knew "The Final Year" demanded Kleenex?

It's hard to know how to read Barker's last scenes, which feature footage of Obama at the Parthenon along with an up-close interview with the president backstage after an event. Obama wants to allay fears and take the long view: This election is a mere blip in the positive arc of humankind, he says. At the White House, Power packs up her files, insisting, like her boss, that "we're in this for the long haul." A surprisingly melancholy gospel cover of "The Times They Are A-Changin' " plays her out. And at least one viewer wept all the way through the credits.
