NBC is prepping a new comedy about a dysfunctional family that just so happens to call 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home.
“1600 Penn” will star Bill Pullman of “Independence Day” fame as the Commander in Chief. Brittany Snow is cast as the president’s daughter and Josh Gad of “Book of Mormon” fame co-stars as the First Son.
The name of note in the production won’t be seen on screen, though. Former Obama and Hillary Clinton speech writer Jon Lovett is one of the comedy”s executive producers.
No word yet on when the show will air, but it’s not unreasonable to assume it could be on the 2012 fall schedule. That means “1600 Penn” will be deposited in the heat of the presidential election campaign.
And does Pullman remind you of any current political figures?
NBC hasn’t released information on what party the president will call his own.
