Former first lady Michelle Obama is bringing us another ‘first’ for reality TV.
The show called A Year of Firsts will follow the good, the bad and the ugly of four first-year college freshmen on IGTV. Obama said in a video promoting the series, “Each of them has overcome tremendous odds to get where they are, and throughout the year, they’ll tell us what that first year of college is really like.”
Obama also said in a statement, “By sharing their stories, they’re helping others see that the ups and downs of the first year of college are something everyone goes through and they’re creating a supportive community for others facing similar challenges.”

The first year of college is exciting, but also a little nerve-racking. As a first-generation college student myself, I know how intimidating it can be to try to navigate through a new place and make new friends, all while trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be. That’s why I’m so excited that @reachhigher is teaming up with @attndotcom to share the stories of four first-year college students: Robert, Linette, Regan, and Haseeb. Can’t wait for you all to meet them and learn more about what taking that leap really feels like, day in and day out. Stay tuned!
The series is set to stream from the middle of this month through June. Will you watch Michelle Obama’s new reality show series?
