Brittany Snow is joining the first family.

The American Dreams actress has signed to play the first daughter in NBC’s comedy 1600 Penn. The single-camera project revolves around a dysfunctional family that just happens to live at the most famous address in America.

Snow will play Becca, the president’s overachieving and perfectionist eldest daughter who helped raise her siblings. She joins Book of Mormon star Josh Gad, who is set to play her gregarious and clumsy older brother Skip.

The Twentieth Century Fox TV pilot is being executive produced by Modern Family director Jason Winer, former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett and Gad. Winer is set to direct the pilot.

Snow, whose credits also include Hairspray, John Tucker Must Die and more recently Harry’s Law, is repped by ICM, Brillistein Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham.
