You've no doubt heard buzz about NBC's upcoming political comedy 1600 Penn, wherein Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman play the President of the United States and First Lady, respectively.

Rainn Wilson's highly anticipated Office spinoff The Farm has been killed and will, instead, go the way of another one of the network's false starts The Munsters.
