New Comedy "1600 Penn" to Portray Quirky White House Family: Best TV Show About Politics?
The creators of this upcoming sitcom insist that even though this show will concern a First Family and their life in the White House, it has nothing to do with politics.
The West Wing
This White House-based drama is Aaron Sorkin’s most beloved creation.
HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy followed Julia-Louis Dreyfus’ hapless Vice President.
Parks and Recreation

Kelsey Grammer received acclaim for his performance as a Chicago mayor with a degenerative neurological disorder, but the show was cancelled last month.
Michael J. Fox shone as the deputy mayor who secretly runs the show in this hit sitcom. As Fox's Parkinson's disease worsened, Charlie Sheen later stepped into the lead role as a new deputy mayor.
The Thick of It
This British series from the creators of “Veep” spawned the feature-length movie “In the Loop,” which became something of a crossover hit back in 2009.
NBC has already announced plans to remake this Danish drama about Denmark’s first (fictional) female prime minister; could it become as successful as “The Killing"?
According to the Washington Post, co-creator and star Josh Gad says, “We never set out to make a political show. . . We wanted to make a show about a family that happens to live in a world where they are surrounded by politics.” The show will also star Bill Pullman as the President and Jenna Elfman as the First Lady.
