Donald Glover has hired Malia Obama as a screenwriter for his new series, and he has high praise for the former first daughter.
“She’s just such an incredibly talented person,” Glover told Vanity Fair during the Season 3 premiere of “Atlanta,” which Glover created and stars in. “She’s really focused and she works really hard.”
Glover signed a deal with Amazon last year for a series about a “Beyonce-like figure” potentially titled “Hive.” Obama, then a Harvard student, reportedly joined the writers room, but Glover’s new comments to Vanity Fair confirmed it.
“I feel like she’s just someone who’s going to have really good things soon,” he said of the 23-year-old. “His writing style is great.”
“When the conditions are right for something to happen, it happens, and when it’s not, it doesn’t,” Glover said. “History was always meant to be what it was.”
