We’re excited to see this new slate of documentaries and films the new production company, Higher Ground Productions, started by Barack and Michelle Obama, are planning for Netflix. The films range from a drama series set in post-World Wall II New York to a film adaptation of the biography “Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom”.
