Malia Obama had a new and very high-profile job, at least for one day. An insider tells TheWrap that the first daughter was seen working as a production assistant on the set of Halle Berry's sci-fi TV series Extant in LA last week. "She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take," the source says, adding that Malia said at one point, "My first time. This is a big deal." No official word from either CBS or the White House yet. Extant premieres July 9, five days after Malia celebrates her Sweet 16. In other Malia news, she recently attended her first prom and will soon be learning to drive. (More Malia Obama stories.)
