Former UN Ambassador Susan Rice Joins Netflix Board of Directors

Former Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice is joining Netflix. Specifically, its board of directors.

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

“We are delighted to welcome Ambassador Rice to the Netflix board,” said Netflix co-founder and CEO Reed Hastings. “For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom.”

“I am thrilled to be joining the board of directors of Netflix, a cutting-edge company whose leadership, high-quality productions, and unique culture I deeply admire,” said Ambassador Rice.

Netflix has recently been making steps to expand its catalogue of original programming, and you may remember reporting from earlier this month that former President Barack Obama was in talks with Netflix to “produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform.”
