Higher Ground Productions, a production company founded in 2018 by Barack and Michelle Obama, will direct the comedy show G Word alongside comedian and Adam Spoils It All, Adam Conover. It will cover the Trump administration’s chaotic handover and air on Netflix.
The show will be based on the book The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis, which elaborated on the governance crisis in the United States when the Trump administration replaced Obama’s leaders. The fact is that Trump simply did not appoint leaders to many important positions, so the system had to work without them. The show will tell about this absurd situation.
G Word will be part documentary and part comedic. Production will begin in early 2021.
