Former first daughter Malia Obama is expected to work as a staffer on Donald Glover’s first project for Amazon, part of an eight-figure deal between the “Atlanta” star and the tech giant.

Glover’s Amazon deal has been in discussions for several weeks, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actor, writer and rapper will end his deal with FX, owned by Disney, in favor of the agreement, according to the publication.

Earlier this month, Glover was reported to be collaborating with “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge on a remake of the 2005 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie comedy film “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

Former President Obama’s daughter has interned and worked on several TV and film productions, including HBO’s “Girls” and CBS’s “Extant.”

In 2017 she interned at producer Harvey Weinstein’s eponymous company before Weinstein left the company in disgrace amid numerous sexual assault and sexual abuse allegations.
