This isn’t Pullman’s first time occupying a fictional Oval Office. He channeled his inner commander-in-chief in the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day.

Modern Family‘s Jason Winer will direct the pilot and serve as an exec producer alongside Gad and former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett.

  • This makes me think of ‘Benson’ for some reason (yes, I remember that show. Yes, it was about a governor, not a president)

    • You forgot “yes, I am that old”. Don’t worry, the memory is the second thing to go at our age.

  • That sounds kind of awesome. I always thought Pullman made an amazing fictional President after Independence Day.
