Obamas Partner Up With Veteran Entertainment Exec

Aug 3, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Barack and Michelle Obama have brought a veteran entertainment executive into the fold as they set up their production company at Netflix.

“Priya Swaminathan, a seasoned entertainment executive with a background in documentaries and social activism, has been hired to work at the Los Angeles-based production company of the former president and first lady, according to sources,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports. “She will team with the Obamas on developing new Hollywood projects via their previously announced Netflix deal.”

Swaminathan, a filmmaker, activist and the former director of development at Annapurna Pictures, has been involved recently in the Time’s Up initiative against sexual harassment and is active in Democratic politics. THR notes that she produced and co-directed “Very Young Girls,” a 2007 documentary on New York’s teenage prostitutes that ran on Showtime.

The Obamas have a multi-year deal with Netflix to produce films and TV series.

  1. I am now officially sickened with Obama’s. Not quite up there with the Clintons…

  2. Well Jim…you are an idiot!

  3. When you look at all of the other people putting together documentaries and interview programs on the various online networks, there is no reason to attack the Obamas. They have the same rights as any other politician, athlete, actor or religious zealot to produce programming. You have the same right not to watch. But these people are providing jobs to a lot of people with all of these programs. No one should object to that because of their personal political beliefs.

  4. It has nothing to do with what you are implying that I said. Stop looking for the racial side. I just do not care for them after voting twice…i am completely over the messiah that ran the police and law and order into the ground. Good tidsens.

  6. mrmoose2759@gmail.com Another building block in the machine that will create, “a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”

    These two people are smart. They understand that this is a unique time – people have been cunningly rounded up and hearded into two camps of insane loyalty. There is an old saying that goes, “divide and conquer.” As President, Barack began the division and now with Trump as President it’s gone to an even higher level.

    Swaminathan, is a “filmmaker and activist” and is active in Democratic politics. No better person could be on Michelle’s and Barack’s team.
