Michelle Obama to star in Netflix children’s show Waffles + Mochi

Michelle Obama is to star alongside puppets in a Netflix show that aims to teach children the joys of home cooking over eating ready meals.

Mrs. Obama will play a supermarket owner opposite Waffles and Mochi, who are from The Land of Frozen Food.

The former US first lady described the series, which is titled Waffles + Mochi and drops next month, as a “hilarious, heartwarming, and simply magical show.”

She and husband Barack are among the executive producers.

The couple signed a deal to produce series and films for Netflix in 2018. The resulting works have included Becoming, the 2020 documentary based on her best-selling autobiography.

In Waffles + Mochi, she will help the pair of puppets, who have got fed up of eating ice and dream of becoming chefs.

Guided by their magical flying shopping trolley, they travel the world to try an array of home-cooked food. Waffles + Mochi will be available from March 16.
