Michelle Obama announced on social media earlier today that she is launching a new kids show on Netflix next month. Waffles + Mochi is a live-action puppet series featuring the titular characters and Obama herself.
It’s launching on March 16 and will follow along as its lead characters discover, cook and eat food from all over the world.
Obama’s production company Higher Ground is producing the series and collaborating with Partnership for a Healthier America. Netflix had not returned our request for comment or additional details at press time.
Netflix and Higher Ground are also working together on a kids show called Ada Twist, Scientist, based on the best-selling book series by Andrea Beaty. This 40 x 12-minuter will debut this year and is being developed and executive produced by Chris Nee.
