LOS ANGELES, June 16 (UPI) --Malia Obama, who will turn 16 on the Fourth of July, has had a landmark year -- she visited China with her mom and sister, started learning to drive and recently attended her first prom. So it's about time she got a taste of the working world.

The Wrap reported Monday that the First Family's eldest daughter was spotted working as a production assistant on the Los Angeles set of Extant, the Halle Berry series set to premiere on CBS next month.

A source told the site that Malia "helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take."

Steven Spielberg, who has donated to the Obama campaign, produced the sci-fi show, which stars Berry as an astronaut who returns home from space to find out that she's mysteriously pregnant.

A New Yorker profile of the president, published in January, described Malia as "an aspiring filmmaker" and fan of Lena Dunham's HBO show, Girls.
