Former first daughter Malia Obama wrote an episode of Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Swarm.’

Swarm centers on Dre (Dominique Fishback) — a superfan whose obsession with a singer goes to especially heinous lengths. Apparently, the show was right up Malia’s alley as she co-wrote Season 1, Episode 5 of Donald Glover’s new suspense thriller.

Co-creator Janine Nabers described the Harvard grad as an “incredible writer” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

"Some of her pitches were wild as hell, and they were just so good and so fun," Janine said. "She's an incredible writer. She brought a lot to the table … She's really, really dedicated to her craft."

Donald echoed Janine’s sentiments at the Season 3 premiere of Atlanta last year (per Vanity Fair): “She’s just like, an amazingly talented person. She’s really focused, and she’s working really hard,” he went on, adding that Malia’s “writing style is great.”

“I feel like she’s just somebody who’s gonna have really good things coming soon,” the actor gushed.

As of now, Prime Video hasn’t canceled or renewed the series for another season, but we have our fingers crossed. When and if the series does return to the small screen, we have a feeling that Malia will be back to join the writers' team.
