Former US president Barack Obama is reportedly in talks with streaming service giant Netflix to produce a series of shows.
The number of episodes and the format of the show has not been decided yet.
Media reports say after leaving White House Obama has always planned to pursue digital media venture.
Michelle Obama, his wife and former first lady, will also be involved in the production of shows.
According to reports, the series would provide the former president with a ''global platform'' to communicate with a larger audience.
Obama earlier discussed producing shows that will highlight inspirational stories.
In another show, Obama would moderate discussions on topics related to his presidency such as healthcare, immigration, voting rights and climate change along with Michelle Obama.
The final deal is yet to be finalised as the negotiations are still underway.
