Barack Obama has long had close ties to Hollywood. Now the 44th U.S. president is officially becoming a Hollywood producer in a new multiyear deal with Netflix that will see the former commander-in-chief and his wife, Michelle, produce movies, TV series and other content for the global streaming giant.

Netflix announced Monday that the former first couple will create a “diverse mix of content,” including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features.
