People have always been fascinated about life inside the White House, and thanks to Barack Obama's speechwriter, we're about to get a really good look inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!
Jon Lovett, who left the Obama administration this summer to pursue a career in Hollywood, just sold a pitch to NBC for a sitcom focusing on a dysfunctional first family and the hijinks they get into while living at the nation's most powerful address: 1600 Penn.
While Lovett wouldn't say where he planned to draw inspiration from, everyone will be drawing parallels to Barack, Michelle and the girls should NBC move forward and turn the pilot into a series.
