- but is it paid? June 16
Malia Obama's summer job is probably a lot cooler than whatever yours was. The Wrap notes that the president's 15-year-old daughter has reportedly landed herself a sweet summer gig working as a production assistant on the upcoming CBS series Extant. The sci-fi thriller stars Halle Berry and is being produced by Steven Spielberg.
"[Malia] helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take," a insider said.
Both CBS and the First Lady's spokesperson didn't respond to The Wrap's request for comment about the state of Malia's employment.- - Jordan Valinsky
