Larry King is heading to the White House.

The former long-running CNN host will make a guest appearance on "1600 Penn," NBC's new comedy about a fictional first family and their lives at the legendary Washington, D.C. address.

NBC announced that King was among a collection of real-life journalists who will stop by "1600 Penn" on Sunday at the 2013 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. Joining King are Savannah Guthrie of "Today," NBC's Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd, and "Morning Joe" co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.

On Sunday, Guthrie retweeted the news about her appearance on "1600 Penn," which sees Bill Pullman return to his POTUS position for the first time since the 1996 box office hit "Independence Day."

"1600 Penn" stars Pullman as Presiden Dale Gilchrist, with Jenna Elfman acting as First Lady Emily Nash-Gilchrist and step-mother to his children Skip (Josh Gad), Becca (Martha MacIsaac), Marigold (Amara Miller) and Zander (Benjamin Stockham).

No politicians have signed on for guest appearances as of now.

"1600 Penn" premieres on Thursday, January 10 at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
