At just 22 years old, Malia Obama has reportedly joined the writing staff of Donald Glover’s new show.
On Wednesday, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that Barack and Michelle Obama’s eldest daughter is working on a potential series called “Hive,” one of Glover’s first projects from his overall deal at Amazon.
The show, rumored to be about a Beyoncé-like figure, comes from writer Janine Nabers, whose credits include “Watchmen” and “Away.”
Glover’s new deal with Amazon will not affect his critically acclaimed FX series “Atlanta,” which will reportedly begin production on its third season in March.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Malia has worked in television. She was an intern on the HBO series “Girls,” as well as a production assistant on Halle Berry’s CBS drama “Extant.”
During a 2017 interview with Howard Stern, “Girls” co-creator and star Lena Dunham gave Malia a glowing review.
“She was interning at HBO, and they thought, What if she comes a couple days a week to the set of ‘Girls’?” Dunham said. “She loved the show. She wanted to do all the jobs. That was the cool thing. She was totally enthusiastic.”
Earlier this month, it was announced that Malia’s mom Michelle will star in and executive produce a Netflix children’s cooking show called “Waffles + Mochi,” available for streaming March 16.
The fun, 10-episode series stems from Michelle and Barack’s 2018 Netflix deal to produce TV shows and movies through their company Higher Ground Productions.
First Washington… now Hollywood!
