A Netflix press release states that former First Lady Michelle Obama is now set to star in a documentary titled Becoming, after her bestselling book of the same name, centered on her 34-city book tour.
“Becoming is an intimate look into the life of former First Lady Michelle Obama during a moment of profound change, not only for her personally but for the country she and her husband served over eight impactful years in the White House,” the statement reads. “The film offers a rare and up-close look at her life, taking viewers behind the scenes as she embarks on a 34-city tour that highlights the power of community to bridge our divides and the spirit of connection that comes when we openly and honestly share our stories.”
“During this difficult time, I hope you’ll find some inspiration and joy in this film,” Michelle wrote about it on Instagram.
Michelle and her husband Barack, of course, have a deal with Netflix, estimated to be in the tens of millions of dollars, to produce content for the left-leaning network.
