Baltimore native Jason Winer, director and executive producer of “Modern Family,” is in production on the comedy pilot for NBC starring Bill Pullman (above). Winer created the series along with Josh Gad and Jonathan Lovett, a former speechwriter in the White House of President Barack Obama.
The series features a dysfunctional family, but this one lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Pullman plays the president, with Gad as his oldest son. Amara Miller (“The Descendants”) plays his 13-year-old daughter. The cast also includes Andre Holland (“Friends With Benefits”) as the White House press secretary.
