You know there’s nothing we love more than seeing two women of color killing the game and while both of these names might be familiar to you, the combo might’ve come as a bit of a surprise. That’s because Malia’s latest entry into the entertainment world comes voluntarily, making her TV writing debut on Amazon Prime Video’s Swarm.
“Some of her pitches were wild as hell, and they were just so good and so funny,” said co-creater Janine Nabers in an interview with ET. “She’s an incredible writer. She brought a lot to the table… She’s really, really dedicated to her craft.”
Chloe Bailey recently opened up about working with Malia Obama on a radio interview with Real 92.3 in Los Angeles, saying, “Shout out to Malia. It was fun seeing how we both have grown and evolved because, like 8 to 10 years ago, we [Chloe x Halle] would perform at the White House, at the Easter Egg Roll.”
She continued, “Seeing Malia on set and then seeing how we both have evolved as our own young women, it’s pretty cool. And I’m so proud of her and how she is just like a force to be reckoned with, with such an incredible pen. She’s amazing.”
Of course the Georgia native couldn’t leave out the Swarm series‘ other co-creator, she said “I love him. I’ve loved him for a long time.” Speaking of Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) she’d add, “the way he balances his acting and his music career is incredible.”
Have you tuned into Swarm yet? Will you? Why or why not?
