A low-level Cabinet member becomes President of the United States after a catastrophic attack kills everyone above him in the line of succession.
Kal Penn, who plays a White House staffer in this show, has actually worked as a White House staffer in his real life. In 2009, his character on House (2004) was killed off so that Penn could take a job as Associate Director of the Obama administration's White House Office of Public Engagement (working there under his birth name, Kalpen Modi). He took a leave from that job in June 2010 to film A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011) and returned to the White House after filming ended, in November 2010. He also worked for Obama's reelection campaign and spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Whoever did this is just getting started.
President Kirkman never travels with "the Beast". Instead the presidents motorcade consist of Tahoe and Suburbans.
