According to Variety, a presidential comedy series may be coming to NBC.
The network has ordered a pilot for “1600 Penn,” a single camera comedy revolving around a dysfunctional family… who live at the White House.
The project comes from a Hollywood power trio: “Modern Family” director Jason Winer, Tony-nominated “Book of Mormon” star Josh Gad and former President Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett. All three men will serve as executive producers.
There’s no guarantee that the pilot will become a full-fledged series, as shows based on White House drama have traditionally run the gamut when it comes to ratings. NBC saw success with drama “The West Wing,” while ABC’s “Commander in Chief” wasn’t so hot.
Previous Washington comedies (Comedy Central’s “That’s My Bush” and UPN series "The Secret Life of Desmond Pfeiffer”) have flopped.
But execs are hopeful about a new wave of political sitcoms. “1600 Penn” will have some competition: According to the Washington Post, HBO has announced their Julia Louis-Dreyfus-led comedy, “Veep,” will launch next year.
There is a joke as pres now so this shouldn't be too much of a stretch

I wonder if the dysfunctional white house family will be black or white ?
Maybe the twist is they're all humanoid aliens,like in third rock from the sun.
