Bebe Neuwirth Signs on For CBS's MADAM SECRETARY Pilot

Another theatre alum has joined the cast of CBS's quickly growing MADAM SECRETARY drama pilot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bebe Neuwirth, who currently starring in CHICAGO on Broadway, just signed on for the Secretary of State series.

Read the original report here.

Also in the cast are Tea Leoni in the lead, Tim Daly, Geoffrey Arend and fellow Broadway actress Patina Miller. MADAM SECRETARY comes from Barbara Hall (Joan of Arcadia) and Morgan Freeman.

Hall wrote the script, which centers on "a maverick female Secretary of State as she drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics and balances a complex family life".

Neuwirth will play 'Nadine', the chief of staff who works alongside the Secretary of State (Leoni).

Her previous TV credits include Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, Bored to Death, Law & Order, Frasier, Hack, Deadline, Cheers and more.

Neuwirth has also starred on Broadway in The Addams Family, Fosse, Chicago and Sweet Charity -- both for which she won Tony Awards -- Damn Yankees, Little Me, Dancin' and A Chorus Line.
