Get ready for a new Netflix children’s show—from the Obamas. That’s right, the former POTUS and FLOTUS are bringing your preschooler something new to stream. And that’s not all!
Higher Ground Productions, a production company launched by President and Mrs. Obama last year, recently announced a seven-project deal with Netflix. Along with the upcoming children’s show, the Obama’s company will bring parents plenty of picks, including a film adaptation of David W. Blight’s Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom, a scripted anthology based on The New York Times‘ Overlooked column, a non-fiction series about everyday heroes and Crip Camp (a feature-length documentary about a summer camp for disabled teens in the 1970s).
Mrs. Obama said, in a press statement about the new productions, “We love this slate because it spans so many different interests and experiences, yet it’s all woven together with stories that are relevant to our daily lives.” the former first-lady went on to add, “We think there’s something here for everyone—moms and dads, curious kids, and anyone simply looking for an engaging, uplifting watch at the end of a busy day. We can’t wait to see these projects come to life — and the conversations they’ll generate.”
So what do we know about the Obama’s new children’s show? According to Netflix, the program (titled Listen to Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents) is a half-hour series for preschoolers that will take your kiddos on a culinary-focused trip around the world.
As of now there is no release date for the new Obama/Netflix projects.
