[FIRST LOOK] Amazon Prime Series ‘Swarm’ Sees a Different Side of Fandom
The new Amazon Prime series Swarm shows an obsessed fan’s descent into depression and violence.
The upcoming Prime Video show (from co-creators and executive producers Janine Nabers and Donald Glover) of the FX series Atlanta) stars 31-year-old Dominique Fishback as Dre, “a young woman obsessed with the world’s biggest pop star who sets off on an unexpected cross-country journey.”
Swarm tells the story of Dre, a young woman who is head over heels “in love” with a fictional pop star (whose oeuvre and aesthetic are very similar to that of American singer Beyoncé), with a fanbase known as “The Swarm.” The forthcoming work is a dive into Dre’s life, her fandom, and how it takes her to dark, unexpected places.
