Michelle Obama book tour documentary coming to Netflix

Michelle Obama

A new documentary about Michelle Obama’s Becoming book tour will be available from Netflix from May 6.

The program, which shares the same name as the former United States first lady’s memoir, follows Michelle as she tours 34 cities across America to talk about her book, which was released in 2018.

It is being released as part of a deal that Michelle, 56, and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, signed with the streaming service under their company banner High Ground Productions in 2018.

In a statement announcing the project, Michelle said: “Those months I spent travelling, meeting and connecting with people in cities across the globe, drove home the idea that what we share in common is deep and real and can’t be messed with.”

Becoming has been directed by Nadia Hallgren and will debut on Netflix on May 6.
