Speaking Of Nepo Babies, Malia Obama Worked With Donald Glover On Swarm, And They’re Reuniting For Another Project

Amid the continued debate over Nepo Babies, many learned that Malia Obama had joined the writers’ room of the Donald Glover-produced series, Swarm. This news seemed to be met with skepticism from some in regard to Obama’s merits as a writer. Despite any pushback though, her contributions as a first-time writer have been championed by Glover and other producers. After the viral Amazon Prime series’ conclusion, the Atlanta creator spoke about working with the former First Daughter on another project they’re reuniting for.

The Hollywood multihyphenate was so impressed by the Harvard graduate’s work on Swarm that he decided to take her under his wing as she pursues a film and TV career. The two creatives are currently working on a short film that will mark Malia Obama’s directorial debut. It’ll also be one of the first offerings from Donald Glover’s production hub, Gilga. As her mentor, Glover was honest with the emerging writer/filmmaker about the pressure she’ll face in Hollywood given her parents’ notoriety. The actor-producer said to GQ:

The first thing we did was talk about the fact that she will only get to do this once. You’re Obama’s daughter. So if you make a bad film, it will follow you around.
