First production assistant, next producer. That’s Malia Obama’s route to the big times.
While President Obama runs the country, his oldest daughter is occupying her time by taking orders from others, which we know she gladly abides.
The 15-year-old permit holder landed her first production gig as the assistant on Halle Berry’s CBS sci-fi small screen debut Extant. According to The Wrap, a source on set said, mini Michelle Obama “helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take.”
This is her first gig behind the scenes in entertainment and a stepping stone for her “filmmaker” future, she’s inching towards.
The new series Berry’s on surrounds her astronaut character and her attempts to revive her long distance relationship with her husband and son. And by long distance we mean outer space. The Steven Spielberg-produced show premieres CBS on July 9 at 9pm, will you be watching?
