Scoop: MADAM SECRETARY on CBS - Sunday, June 4, 2017

On the episode, "The Linchpin" - With Algeria on the brink of a civil war, Elizabeth delicately negotiates a regime change, but her plans go awry when Roy Curtis (Dakin Matthews), the trusted U.S. Ambassador to Algeria, dies unexpectedly. Also, Henry fights to save religious antiquities in Algeria when he discovers they are being destroyed by Hizb al-Shahid, and the McCord children get their own security detail after Jason's computer is hacked, on a rebroadcast of MADAM SECRETARY, Sunday, June 4 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Michael Boatman guest stars as FBI Director Keith Doherty, who helps the McCords investigate the hacking of Jason's computer. (Originally broadcast 10/16/16.)

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.
