Stephen Glover — Donald’s brother who also writes and produces Atlanta alongside him — also reportedly signed an overall deal with Amazon too.

But wait, there’s more: Malia Obama has reportedly been hired as part of the show’s writer’s room for Hive, a TV series in early development and the plot of which THR describes as “[revolving] around a Beyonce-like figure.”

For those worrying about the fate of Atlanta, don’t fret: THR also reports that the third and fourth seasons of the show start shooting in March, and that the Amazon deal has no effect on the show.
