Netflix Doc On Michelle Obama To Debut On May 6th

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

A documentary feature about Michelle Obama — the existence of which has been kept top-secret for months — will be made available worldwide on Netflix on May 6.

Becoming, like reigning best documentary feature Oscar winner American Factory, originated from Higher Ground, the production company run by former President Barack Obama and the former first lady, which has an exclusive pact with Netflix.

The doc, which marks the feature directorial debut of cinematographer Nadia Hallgren (Trouble the Water), shares the name of the former first lady’s best-selling 2018 memoir and recounts some of the same history of her life. But it also picks up where that story left off by following her on the 34-city tour that she undertook while promoting her book.
