"1600 Penn" (TV show) on NBC is a single-camera comedy series, starring Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman.

The Gilchrists are just the average American family dealing with all the everyday issues — like a grown kid who's forced to move back home, children who are smarter than their teachers and a stepmom, Emily Nash Gilchrist (Jenna Elfman, "Dharma and Greg"), desperately trying to win over the kids. They're loving, fun and a little crazy. In other words, just like everybody else. With one exception: they live in a very special house. The White House! Whether it's entertaining foreign dignitaries, sneaking away for a night out, dealing with middle school crushes or putting out fires — figuratively and sometimes literally — there's never a dull moment in the Gilchrist White House. For example, the First Son, Skip Gilchrist (Josh Gad, star of Broadway sensation "The Book of Mormon"), is one of the administration's biggest liabilities, but also the glue that holds this family together. President Dale Gilchrist (Bill Pullman, "Independence Day," "While You Were Sleeping") knows too well that the only thing harder than being Head of State is being head of the family.

The cast also includes Martha MacIsaac ("Superbad") as Becca Gilchrist, Andre Holland ("Friends with Benefits") as Marshall Malloy, Amara Miller ("The Descendants") as Marigold Gilchrist and Benjamin Stockham ("Sons of Tucson") as Xander Gilchrist.

"Modern Family" meets "The West Wing" in this election-year comedy from Emmy-winning executive producer/director Jason Winer ("Modern Family"). The executive producers are Winer, Gad and Jon Lovett (former White House speechwriter). Winer also directed the pilot. "1600 Penn" is produced by 20th Century Fox.
