President Dale Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) has a host of family issues to deal with while running the country. His new wife Emily (Jenna Elfman) is trying to become accepted as a member of the family. His oldest son Skip (Creator/JoshGad) is a LazyBum who has moved back home after wasting seven years of college partying. Oldest daughter Becca (Martha [=MacIsaac=]) is supposed to be the respectable one, but has just become pregnant as the series opens due to the LawOfInverseFertility. The First Family is rounded out with lesbian teen Marigold (Amara Miller) and preteen genius Xander (Benjamin Stockham). Press secretary Marshall Malloy (Andre Holland) is Becca's former boyfriend while lovable idiot D.B. (Robbie Amell) is her baby daddy, [[spoiler:except actually Marshall is the father after all]].

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: There's no such thing as a "Princess of Andorra". Although the leaders of the country are called "co-princes", it's not a hereditary monarchy. The co-princes are a bishop appointed by ThePope and the other is the President of France (formerly the King of France). The only way there would be an Andorran princess would be if the French president was female (the other co-prince can't be female, being a Catholic bishop and all).
