Look for Malia Obama's name in future film and TV credits.

The first daughter tried out a day in the life of a TV production assistant on the Los Angeles set of Halle Berry's new CBS sci-fi thriller Extant, produced by Steven Spielberg.

"She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take," an insider told The Wrap.

The source also quoted Obama, 15, as commenting on the experience, "My first time. This is a big deal!"

The White House did not dispute the report, but declined to elaborate. President Obama told PEOPLE in 2012 that his eldest daughter had expressed some interest in filmmaking.

"Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies. But she's a freshman, so she also knows she has years in college to explore her interest," her mom Michelle Obama added.
