The 44th President of the United States will star in a five-part Netflix docuseries beginning next month, according to Deadline.
Barack Obama will appear in and narrate the internationally spanning Our Great National Parks, taking his post-White House career to a new level.
The five-episode Our Great National Parks, which will premiere on the streaming service on April 13 and span 5 continents, was first revealed on February 5 of last year.
There was no indication at the time that the former Commander-in-Chief would be much more than an EP on the series, which was part of Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground shingle’s Netflix slate.
During its first season, Our Great National Parks journeyed from Monterey Bay, California, to Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, Indonesia’s Gunung Leuser National Park, and Chilean Patagonia, among other places.
The series will also include an educational and interactive component, in quintessential Obama fashion.
In conjunction with the premiere of the series, the Wildlife Conservation Society and Count Us will initiate a nature protection campaign in collaboration with the producers of Our Great National Parks.
