Swarm centers on a Beyoncé-like character and her devoted fan. The series is planning to make scathing comments on fan culture and the parasocial interactions between fans and superstars. Beyoncé and other well-known musicians are known for having devoted fan bases; hence, they stray from possessiveness.

The teaser starts with the escalating sound of bees buzzing before finishing with the horrifying picture of a blood puddle being wiped up by a dancing woman. The brief sequence doesn’t reveal much, but it teases the series’ apparent obsession with horror’s weird and unsettling aspects.

Dre comes across new individuals and potential admirers who know her as she’s on the verge of having a breakdown “a deadly bee. a member of the swarm “. After that, a series of ferocious, hysterical, and seductive images depict Dre traveling with clubs, party clothes, and “crazy-ass followers,” whom she considers friends, hoping to see her beloved musician.
