"Little White House On The Prairie Down"

From Wiki and Wiki:

Although predominantly a drama, there are some comedic moments. The show's central characters are Charles Ingalls (Channing Tatum), a U.S. Capitol Police officer who is assigned to the Speaker of the House, his wife Caroline (Richard Jenkins), after Ingalls saved Caroline's nephew's life during a tour in Kansas.

Cale is struggling to develop a better relationship with their four daughters Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace (Joey King), who has a strong enthusiasm for politics. He hopes to impress them by getting a job with the Secret Service and adopting three children - Albert, Cassandra, and James.

His hopes are dashed when the interviews are conducted by the Oleson family - Nels, proprietor of the town's general store and his malicious, gossiping wife, Harriet (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a former college acquaintance of his who believes him to be unqualified due to a lack of respect for authority and follow-through.

After lying to his four daughters about the outcome of the interview, the Ingalls family joins a tour of the White House. At the same time, U.S. President Rev. Robert Alden (Jamie Foxx) proposes a controversial peace treaty between Lars Hanson, the town's founder and proprietor of the town's mill; and Dr. Hiram Baker, the town's physician.

Meanwhile, Mary Ingalls meets teacher-turned-husband, Adam Kendall, a mercenary disguised as a janitor, who detonates a bomb at the center of Oleson's Mercantile, the town's general store.
