The first teaser trailer for Swarm, the eagerly awaited horror series from the great Donald Glover and Atlanta author Janine Nabers, has finally been released. Dominique Fishback plays Dre in the show, a young woman whose obsession with a well-known pop artist turns evil. The YouTube-hosted teaser offers a fascinating insight into the ominous and disturbing universe of Swarm.
The pilot episode of Swarm was directed by Donald Glover, who is already well-known for creating the hit television series Atlanta. According to reports, the show is set between 2016 and 2018 and is inspired by Beyoncé and her devoted fandom. In the teaser trailer, Fishback is seen in a strip club, a hospital, and a bedroom while an ominous voice keeps posing the question, “Who is your favorite artist?”
Fishback is working on the project as a producer in addition to playing the main character. Members of the musical duo Chloe x Halle Damson Idris and Chlöe Bailey accompany her, and Malia Obama, the former first daughter, is listed as the show’s writer. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Fishback expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to work on the project, saying, “I was like, ‘Oh, crap! I’m familiar to Donald Glover. That’s very awesome.
On March 10, Swarm is scheduled to have its festival debut at South by Southwest (SXSW), and on March 17, it will be streamable on Amazon Prime Video. Prepare yourself for a tense and terrifying encounter with Swarm, and keep a look out for more exciting news about this eagerly awaited series.
