Obamas to Produce Netflix Anti-Trump Sketch Series

| Comments

The former president and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, acquired the rights to Michael Lewis' book “The Fifth Risk” back in 2018 as reported by Deadline. The show will be based on the book.

Barack and Michelle Obama will produce a Netflix sketch comedy series, “The G Word,” expected to be loosely based on an anti-Trump book that portrays the chaos that reportedly erupted after President Trump won the 2016 election.

Comedian Adam Conover, who will partner with the Obamas for the series, confirmed the news on Twitter.

“Very happy to finally be able to share this news: I’m creating a new comedy series for Netflix about the federal government. It’s called The G Word, and I can’t wait to share it with you,” Conover wrote, quote-tweeting the Deadline report. The series, which does not have a release date, will feature comedy “mixed with documentary elements,” according to Deadline.

The Obamas, under the name Higher Ground Productions, have a multimillion-dollar Netflix deal. Their first Netflix documentary “American Factory” hit the streaming service in 2019 and was widely considered an attack on Trump. The documentary focused on a Chinese billionaire who opens a factory “in the husk” of an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring 2,000 blue-collar Americans.
