It follows Houston native Dre, played by Dominique Fishback, who’s an obsessive fan of the mega pop star “Ni-Jah” and goes on a cross-country trek that takes a violent turn during a home invasion.
The minute-long teaser even shows Fishback’s character dancing and mopping up a pool of blood.
“The series was also inspired by Houston urban legends like of Marissa Jackson, a fake Beyoncé fan who allegedly died by suicide when she heard that Jay-Z allegedly cheated on Beyoncé, writes Vulture.
Glover spoke with Vanity Fair in January about his new show and the works that inspired it.
“We just thought it’d be fun to make a post-truth Piano Teacher mixed with The King of Comedy,” Glover told Vanity Fair. “Me and my brother Stephen were talking about finding someone like Isabelle Huppert, as far as risk-takers in performances.”
“A lot of people did it out of the kindness of their hearts and they did a really great job,” he continued before noting some other up-and-comers in Hollywood who star in the show. “Dom, Damson [Idris], Chlöe [Bailey]. I was really blown away at how hard they worked on the tone, ’cause it’s a strange one.”
All seven episodes are set to premiere March 17 on Prime Video.
The show doesn’t just mark the return of Glover, but his musical alter ego Childish Gambino, who sneakily snuck a new track entitled “Sticky” into the teaser.
“Sticky-icky / Somebody’s watching, so watch your back / Don’t look back, look at the mess you’ve made,” Gambino sings on the eerie track, which is part of an entire EP that’s also dropping Friday.
