While specific details are few and far in between, The New York Times reports that Obama's new show will provide him with a "global platform" to talk to the American people about whatever he wants in a relaxed and unfiltered setting.

Former President Barack Obama is reportedly planning to produce a series of shows with the streaming service alongside his wife, Michelle.

According to the paper, the number of episodes and format of the shows is yet to be decided and Mr Obama does not intend to use the programmes to directly respond to criticism by his successor, Donald Trump, or other political opponents.

Netflix told the BBC it had no comment to make about the reports.
