Synopsis

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, teenagers 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 everyone else - with one exception: they live in a very special house. The White House!

Whether it's entertaining foreign dignitaries, holding secret cabinet meetings 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. Also starring are Martha MacIsaac, Andre Holland, Amara Miller and Benjamin Stockham .

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.
