#Roommates, our all-time favorite couple Barack and Michelle Obama may (unfortunately) no longer be in the White House, but they’re still very busy these days with a variety of projects as part of their multi-million dollar deal with Netflix. In an effort to teach kids the ins and outs of politics from a young age, Barack and Michelle Obama recently announced their new Netflix animated series that will teach kids all about government.
@EntertainmentWeekly reports that Barack and Michelle Obama are executive producers of their upcoming Netflix animated series, “We The People,” a 10-episode series specifically designed to educate children about the United States government. The series is described as “an exuberant call to action for all to rethink citizenship as a living, breathing thing and to reshape their understanding of what government and citizenship mean in a modern world.”
We The People (also Executive Producer of Kenya Barris and created by the writer of Doc McStuffins) will be released exclusively on Netflix on July 4th. The animated series will also feature some of the biggest names in the music scene with original footage including HER, Janelle Monae, Andra Day, Daveed Diggs, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the poet Amanda Gorman.
A few weeks before its Netflix premiere, “We The People” will be shown in a free screening at the AFI DOCS film festival on June 24th. This is one of several projects Barack and Michelle Obama have under their exclusive deal with Netflix to create original content.
