Brittany Snow 1600 PennBrittany Snow and Bill Pullman are moving into 1600 Penn, NBC’s single camera White House comedy starring and produced by Book of Mormon breakout Josh Gad.

The Harry’s Law/American Dreams alumna will play Becca, the overachieving and perfectionist eldest daughter of the President (played by Pullman) who helped raise her siblings. Gad plays her gregarious and clumsy older brother Skip.

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)

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