Malia Obama has a summer job that is sure to be the envy of her classmates - she was spotted working as a production assistant on the set of Halle Berry's "Extant," a CBS sci-fi series.

Someone who works on the show's production told The Wrap that Malia, "helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take."

According to the insider, Malia was delighted and laughed, saying, "My first time! This is a big deal."

Michelle told People in 2012 that Malia had "expressed some interest in filmmaking. Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies."

Spokespeople for CBS and the First Lady have not responded - which isn't too surprising, given that the First Children are usually shielded from the limelight of the press.

Malia Obama joined her parents in California this weekend, after Sidwell Friends School let out earlier this month. Malia will turn 16 on July 4th.
