Obama’s Network

First Family frequent guests on NBC and other Comcast-owned nets

The first family has been selective in its cameo appearances, reserving its star-power for networks owned by major supporters. Barack Obama will be gracing cable TV screens Saturday night when he introduces the movie of the week—To Kill a Mockingbird—on USA Network. Gregory Peck’s family, as well as several cast members, will join Obama for the prime time introduction for the film’s 50th anniversary.
