Téa Leoni is definitely the boss in the new drama series titled Madam Secretary. She plays a Secretary of State who likes to have her own way.
Téa Leoni was a CIA expert and professor who was chosen by the President himself. And although she is ready to take on the responsibilities which come with the career, she is determined to do it in a personal and independent way.
Barbara Hall, Lori McCreary, Morgan Freeman, Tracy Merce and David Semel are the executive producers of the Madam Secretary while Barbara is also the writer and David is also the director of the show.
She is even willing to forgo all the bureaucratic rigmarole attached with the responsibility in order to get the job done. Furthermore, she manages to hang in there and get everything in control both at home and abroad.
The fact is that this Secretary of State left the CIA and her professorial tenure due to moral reasons. After the fishy circumstances in which the former Secretary of State died, she is the obvious choice to lead the nation as a deputy.
"Tea Leoni stars as the Secretary of State, one of the most powerful people in the nation. After years away from the CIA, she is pulled back into the political arena where she gets things done, even if it means not always playing by the rules.
She's tough, fair and smart driving international diplomacy and wrangling office politics. But when she goes home for dinner with her husband and teenage children, politics takes on a whole new meaning," states CBS in the official synopsis of Madam Secretary.
The drama series shows how the head of the country appreciates Tea’s vast wisdom about everything from troubled spots on the globe to her command over linguistics. And her creative ability to turn things upside down and inside out is simply marvelous.
Several other stars and starlets act in the drama series Madam Secretary. It is truly a feminist look at how the sisters around the world are doing it for themselves.
Tea Leoni has already earned fame for appearing in various films and she has also aced television before. Her recent appearance has won her accolades and the role she plays is of a strong woman who knows what she wants.
Madam Secretary is set to air on CBS every Sunday night starting this fall for 1 hour between 60 Minutes and The Good Wife at 8PM to 9PM.
