This short-lived sitcom starred George C Scott as Samuel Arthur Tresch – the gruff 42nd President of the United States.
Joining him in the White House were his wife Meg (Carlin Glynn); three kids – Nick (Andre Gower), Cynthia (Maddie Corman) and Jennifer (Susan Wheeler Duff); son-in-law, Fred (Daniel McDonald) and longtime friend/chief of staff, Charlie Ross (Conrad Bain).
When ratings faltered, Madeline Kahn was added as the President’s flighty sister-in-law, Lois, but to no avail. The show was scrapped in April 1988.
