Those who tuned in for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this morning on NBC may have caught the advertisements for the new comedy 1600 Penn. There's a new trailer for the upcoming series, which is set in the White House and follows the humorous shenanigans of the dysfunctional First Family.
It looks like NBC's giving 1600 Penn a running start, not only by beginning the promotion process months in advance, but by scheduling a sneak preview of the series next month to air following the final performance episode of the third season of The Voice. The latest trailer gives us a good look at the series, which has Bill Pullman playing the President and Jenna Elfman as the First Lady. Josh Gad plays the President's son Skip, while Martha MacIsaac plays his daughter Becca.
So, while the First lady has to deal with kids asking the wrong questions, Josh Gad's character Skip says the wrong thing and MacIsaac's Becca is young, presumably unmarried and pregnant. And the President needs to learn how to hug. There's drama in that White House, but it looks like the funny kind. We'll have to wait and see how the show does when it premieres next year.
1600 Penn premiers Thursday, January 10 at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC. The sneak preview is set to air Monday, December 17 at 9:30 p.m. ET following The Voice.
