Individually recruited by a mysterious spy agency, their roles grant them a peek into a world of opulence, espionage, globetrotting, and the allure of a coveted brownstone residence in New York City.This would mark Childish Gambino’s second show for Prime Video, following the success of his series Swarm, which was released in March.Acknowledging his role as the co-creator of the series, Donald revealed a surprising revelation about himself: he confessed to having never watched Brad and Angelina’s movie, deeming it “sacrilege.” It was only when a friend secured the rights to the film and presented the show concept to him that he delved into the source material.Donald clarified that the divergence between their show and the original movie is beneficial for the audience.
