Malia Obama Is A Writer On Donald Glover’s New Show

The Emmy winner is singing her praises.

Donald Glover is creating a new show for Amazon Studios and Malia Obama is one of the writers.

Glover told Variety, “I feel like she’s just somebody who’s gonna have really good things coming soon. Her writing style is great.”

Stephen Glover, Donald’s brother and collaborator, said about Obama, “Donald always says perspective is important, and people with different perspectives are important for a writers’ room. And for sure, [Malia] definitely has a unique perspective on everything. So we wanted to hear her stories and have her work with us. Listening to her stories and having her involved really gave us a lot of good ideas.”
