Swarm is a comedy-horror series that featured hows Dre’s obsession with a fictional, Beyoncé-like pop star, Ni’Jah (Nirine S. Brown), along with her love for her foster sister, Marissa (Chloe Bailey), lead her down a violent path.
But initially, Dominique was actually recruited for the role of Marissa, not Dre! “I’m used to being a character that’s loved or easy to like and, no lie, you get comfortable with that — I like that!” Fishback revealed ahead of Swarm’s March 17 premiere. “But I had to get out of my own way to be the artist, the actor, that I came here to be.”

Uh, really?’ She felt very sweet, like someone you wanted to take care of, but she wanted to do the opposite, which I completely understand even in my own career. She wanted to branch out, and I was excited to allow her to do that.”
