Sasha Obama-'Pretty Little Liars': Obama's daughter on set of show

Sasha Obama visited the set of "Pretty Little Liars," according to a report today by TMZ. Sasha Obama spent time with the entire cast of "Pretty Little Liars" as they filmed. Sasha---sister to Malia Obama---and daughter to President Barack Obama, is said to be visiting only...no work involved.

"Pretty Little Liars" first debuted on ABC on June 8, 2010. The family drama series is produced by Alloy Entertainment and is based on books by Sara Shepard. The cast includes Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario.

It was previously reported that sister Malia Obama was working on the set of actress Halle Berry's new show "Extant" as a production assistant. Some of her duties included: getting coffee for the cast and CBS production team, computer shop alignments and slating a take, according to The Wrap. Malia Obama was said to have been very excited to be working her first job.

Of course Malia Obama's new job opportunity was not without criticism. One person stated that she found it ironic that the President's daughter was working on the set of "Extant," a show about astronauts when it was her own father, President Barack Obama, who "destroyed NASA and the U.S. space program," the commenter stated.

In any event, with both president's daughters visiting tv production sets, a career in the Hollywood-entertainment industry could be in the making. It is good to make those kinds of connections early in the game. Nothing is better than having the President of the United States as a job reference.

A few movies in the past have taken on the subject of daughters of presidents, such as "First Daughter," a 1999 TNT movie, "First Daughter," the 2004 movie about a president's daughter who goes off to college for the first time and embarks on a new career, "Chasing Liberty," another 2004 movie and the 1998 movie "My Date with the President's Daughter."
