Barack and Michelle Obama will produce a Netflix sketch comedy series, “The G Word,” expected to be loosely based on an anti-Trump book that portrays the chaos that reportedly erupted after President Trump won the 2016 election.

The former president and first lady acquired the rights to Michael Lewis' book “The Fifth Risk” back in 2018. Deadline, which first reported the news, noted that the show will be based on the book. Lewis has authored several books that have subsequently turned into successful movies, including “Moneyball” and “The Big Short.”

Comedian Adam Conover, who will partner with the Obamas for the series, confirmed the news on Twitter.
