When your dad is the President, hard work is hereditary.

Barack Obama’s 15-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, has landed a production assistant gig on Halle Berry’s CBS sci-fi series ExtantThe Wrap reports.

A production source says Malia “helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take.”

Extant focuses on Berry’s character, an astronaut who attempts to revive her relationship with her husband and son after being away on a solo mission for a year. The show — a production from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television — premieres on CBS on July 9 at 9pm.
