Obama To Screen Sitcom “1600 Penn” At 1600 Penn
But it doesn’t seem too close to home.
A “trophy wife” as first lady, a hapless college-aged son who burns down a fraternity house, and a daughter frantically taking pregnancy tests in a White House bathroom – this TV comedy had better be funny.
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama is slated to hold a private screening at the White House with the cast and crew of “1600 Penn,” an NBC series about a dysfunctional first family.
The show, co-created by Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for Obama, stars Bill Pullman as U.S. President Dale Gilchrist and Jenna Elfman as his first lady, and is named after the street address of the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
