NEW YORK (AP) — Netflix says a documentary portrait of Michelle Obama titled "Becoming" will premiere on its streaming service next week.

The film announced Monday is described as "an intimate look into the life of former first lady Michelle Obama."

It chronicles her 34-city book tour in 2018-2019 for her memoir "Becoming." Obama's promotional tour, managed by the concert promoter Live Nation, was more like a rock tour, with a string of dates at sold-out arenas.

The film will debut May 6 on Netflix. In a statement, Obama says the experience "drove home the idea" that the things people have in common is "deep and real and can't be messed with."
