Scoop: MADAM SECRETARY on CBS - Sunday, September 21, 2014 Newly-appointed Secretary Of State Elizabeth McCord is immediately faced with a maelstrom of complex political challenges, and an international hostage situation is her top priority. Meanwhile at home, Elizabeth questions whether she did the right thing by taking this job, as her children are finding it difficult to adjust to their new schools, on the series premiere of MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, Sept. 21 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET, 8:00-9:00 PM, PT, with an encore broadcast at 10:30-11:30 PM, ET, 10:00-11:00 PM, PT), on the CBS Television Network.

MADAM SECRETARY stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, determined, newly appointed Secretary of State who drives international diplomacy, battles office politics and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home. A college professor and a brilliant former CIA analyst who left for ethical reasons, Elizabeth returns to public life at the request of the President following the suspicious death of her predecessor. The President values her apolitical leanings, her deep knowledge of the Middle East, her flair for languages and her ability to not just think outside the box, but to not even acknowledge there is a box. McCord's team includes her Chief of Staff Nadine Tolliver, speechwriter Matt Mahoney, press coordinator Daisy Grant and her charming assistant, Blake Moran. As McCord debates third world problems, finesses foreign dignitaries at work and does battle with the President's combative Chief of Staff Russell Jackson, that's just a warm-up for when she goes home to her supportive husband Henry and their three children, where "politics" and "compromise" take on new meaning.
