In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nabers talked about Malia’s skills as a writer. “I think Malia completed the circle of things we were looking for in a writer to tell this story. She nailed it. Her episode is great,” she said.
“Swarm” follows a disturbed girl obsessed with a Beyonce-like popstar, who embarks on a cross-country journey to meet up with her idol, running into all sorts of characters along the way. Series guest stars include Billie Eilish, Rory Culkin, Kate Lyn Sheil, and more.
