Amongst the 12 new shows that NBC has ordered for next season is 1600 Penn, the first family comedy from 20th Century Fox Television and writers Josh Gad and Jon Lovett. The comedy series is currently penciled in for a mid-season launch. Want to know more about 1600 Penn? TVWise presents a first look at the new series.
1600 Penn revolves around The Gilchrists, 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 (Jenna Elfman) 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 (Josh Gad) is one of the administration’s biggest liabilities, but also the glue that holds this family together. The President (Bill Pullman) knows too well that the only thing harder than being Head of State is being head of the family.
