NETFLIX has announced that Michelle Obama is starring in her own kids cooking show.
Fans of the former First Lady were excited to hear the news and can't wait to see her in action.
When is Michelle Obama's Netflix cooking show Waffles + Mochi released?
Michelle will star alongside puppets Waffles + Mochi.
The series – which Michelle and husband Barack Obama executive produce – aims to teach children the joys of home cooking over eating ready meals.
Waffles + Mochi will drop on Netflix March 16, 2021.
There will be 10 episodes to stream in the series.
What is Waffles + Mochi about?
Michelle 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".
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.
Michelle said: "I only wish Waffles + Mochi had been around when my daughters were growing up.
"Because it's the kind of programme that's fun to watch together as a family, and gives parents the peace of mind to know that their little ones are learning something, too."
She also said the show was "an extension of my work to support children's health as first lady".
What else has Michelle Obama released on Netflix?
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.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time she has worked with puppets as she invited Sesame Street characters to the White House as part of a campaign to change school meals in the US and fight childhood obesity.
