The former first lady Michelle Obama premieres a new documentary called Becoming on May 6th on the streaming service Netflix. It is based on her memoir of the same name which was published in 2018. Reportedly, the documentary will also cover stories from her book tour when she visited 34 cities.
Michelle explains that while traveling she made many connections which furthered her view that the bonds we make are true and raw. She also recounted that while we as individuals are different from each other, there are many things that transcend age, race or nationality – and one of those things is the topic of how we can all work together to form a better future for everyone.
A multiyear contract was signed between Netflix and the Obamas’ production company called Higher Ground Productions, which will surely be a stepping stone in the creation of multiple series or documentaries from the former POTUS and FLOTUS. They have also signed an agreement with Spotify for future podcasts.
