The pilot comes from newly-buzzworthy comedy actor Josh Gad
, Modern Family
director Jason Winer and former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett. From those factors alone, we could probably guess that the series is going to be hilarious, with a sweet family spin, and spot-on political commentary. And we'd be right because the series follows a free-wheeling older son (Gad) who returns home to his family - who just happens to be America's First Family. No biggie. For Pullman's role, he's the President and Gad's father, a strict man with a strong military background. Brittany Snow
was also cast as the First Daughter - and if past experience serves us well, she'll play Little Miss Perfect to Gad's surefire screw-up.
And this may be Pullman's second turn as a president, but we can probably bet that his famous "Just nuke 'em" line won't find a home on this family comedy.
