Scoop: Coming Up On All New MADAM SECRETARY on CBS - Sunday, April 8, 2018
On the episode "Phase Two" - Senator Morejon (José Zú?iga) puts phase two of Elizabeth's U.S./Iran arms deal in jeopardy when he asserts that Iran funneled money from phase one of the deal to fund a recent bombing that killed an American citizen. Also, Henry mulls over the option of becoming the chairman of the new military ethics department at the National War College, on MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, April 8 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
MADAM SECRETARY stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, determined 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 returned to public life at the request of President Conrad Dalton, who values McCord's apolitical leanings, deep knowledge of the Middle East, flair for languages and ability to not just think outside the box, but to not even acknowledge there is a box. McCord's team includes chief of staff Nadine Tolliver; policy advisor Jay Whitman; speechwriter Matt Mahoney; press coordinator Daisy Grant; and 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, theology professor turned intelligence operative Henry, and their three children, where "politics" and "compromise" take on new meaning.
