The pilot, which follows a dysfunctional First Family, is co-written and co-executive produced by "Book of Mormon" co-star Josh Gad, who will also star as the out-of-control oldest son of the family, who returns home and "becomes not only it’s biggest liability but also the glue holding everyone together."
"Modern Family" writer Jason Winer and former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett are also co-writing and co-executive producing the pilot.
