The show stars Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman as a president and first lady who are just an average family, with the exception of living in the White House.
Josh Gad plays their grown son, who is forced to move back home and is somewhat of a liability.
The show takes a comical look at things that most parents do, just on a presidential scale.
One episode will show what a parent-teacher conference looks like when the parents are president and first lady.
"The series is really about this family and the dynamics of this ensemble and it's about the everyday events that a normal family would go through," Gad said.
