NBC to Give Sneak Peek of Josh Gad's 1600 PENN Tonight

NBC's live, 90-minute final performance episode of "The Voice" airs tonight, Monday, December 17 (8-9:30 p.m.ET), and will be followed by a sneak preview of NBC's new comedy series 1600 PENN; (9:30-10 p.m. ET), starring Tony nominee Josh Gad.

"1600 Penn" stars Bill Pullman ("Independence Day"), Jenna Elfman ("Dharma and Greg") and Josh Gad (Broadway's "The Book of Mormon") - and concerns a typical American family who just happen to live in the White House. The series will premiere in its regular day and time on Thursday, January 10 (9:30-10 p.m. ET).

In "1600 Penn," the Gilchrists are just the average American family dealing with all the everyday issues - like a grown kid who's forced to move back home, children who are smarter than their teachers and a stepmom (Elfman) desperately trying to win over the kids. They're loving, fun and a little crazy. In other words, just like everybody else. With one exception: they live in a very special house. The White House!

Whether it's entertaining foreign dignitaries, sneaking away for a night out, dealing with middle school crushes or putting out fires - figuratively and sometimes literally - there's never a dull moment in the Gilchrist White House. For example, the First Son (Josh Gad, star of Broadway sensation "The Book of Mormon") is one of the administration's biggest liabilities, but also the glue that holds this family together. The President (Bill Pullman, "Independence Day," "While You Were Sleeping") knows too well that the only thing harder than being Head of State is being head of the family.

Also starring are Martha MacIsaac ("Superbad"), Andre Holland ("Friends with Benefits"), Amara Miller ("The Descendants") and Benjamin Stockham ("Sons of Tucson"). "Modern Family" meets "The West Wing" in this election-year comedy from Emmy-winning executive producer/director Jason Winer ("Modern Family").

The executive producers are Winer, Gad and Jon Lovett (former White House speechwriter). Winer also directed the pilot. "1600 Penn" is produced by 20th Century Fox.
