Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is tapping his creativity into the tv world once again. The series idea was pitched to Atlanta writer and producer, Janine Nabers, who was on board with the modern "anti-hero story". Swarm enlists Dominique Fishback (Judas and the Black Messiah), Damson Idris (Snowfall), and singer Chloe Bailey as lead roles. Notably, Malia Obama is apart of the writers room.
A story of Dre (Fishback), obsessed with a fictional pop star whose aesthetics are very similar to Beyonce's, is created of her life, fandom, and the darkside of it. Marissa (Bailey) plays Dre's sister, and (no character name provided yet) Idris plays her boyfriend.
Nabers describes Swarm as "living in the same tonal space as Atlanta".
I'm excited for this one. No release date as of yet, but it is confirmed that the series will house on AMAZON.
Swarm arrives on 03/17.
