She hasn’t even graduated yet, and Malia Ann Obama has already landed her first post-Harvard job. The former first daughter, 22, scored a coveted spot on the writing staff of Donald Glover’s upcoming Amazon Studios series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s unclear when the project will start filming, but Malia Ann Obama will certainly be busy after she gets her degree in spring 2021. The series, part of a larger deal the Atlanta star inked with Amazon, is tentatively titled Hive and will reportedly revolve around a Beyoncé-like figure.
It comes courtesy of Janine Nabers, who previously wrote for HBO’s Watchmen. While landing a TV staff writing job is rare for someone as young as Malia Ann Obama, this isn’t Barack and Michelle Obama‘s daughter’s first foray into the entertainment industry.
Malia Obama famously interned for The Weinstein Company in New York City in 2017 during her gap year before beginning at Harvard University. The internship occurred before the #MeToo movement and Harvey Weinstein‘s eventual downfall.
In 2015, Malia interned in New York City on the set of Lena Dunham‘s HBO series Girls. She also briefly served as a production assistant on the Los Angeles set of Halle Berry‘s CBS drama series Extant as a teenager.
