Madam Secretary Details

Téa Leoni is Elizabeth McCord in Madam Secretary. When the former Secretary of State is killed in a plane crash, Elizabeth tops The President's short list to replace Vincent Marsh. As her former boss at the CIA, President Dalton knows Elizabeth is an out of the box thinker who won't hesitate to break protocol but won't compromise her high moral standards.

The show follows her early days in office as she familiarizes herself with Washington politics and advising The President on foreign affairs. She's less interested in PR-friendly photo ops and dinners and more on doing what's right, whether it's protecting those threatened with ethnic genocide or preventing two American teenagers from being executed.

Just as Elizabeth is starting to find her footing, she discovers that her predecessor's death may not have been accidental from a former CIA colleague. Before he can investigate further, he is killed in a suspicious, single car accident. Elizabeth soon discovers that Vincent Marsh may have put a target on his back when his plans to run against President Dalton became known to certain DC power players, including The President.

Elizabeth continues to keep peace in the world while seeking justice for her friend and watching her own back against unknown enemies.

Madam Secretary Quotes

The terrorist group Hizb al-Shahid has only been in existence for a short time, but has already perpetrated countless acts of violence across the globe including setting off a dirty bomb in Virginia. My family was at ground zero during the attack and because of that I wondered if I was the right person to stand here today and ask you for your help. Is it too personal? And then I realized, yes, it is personal to me, and to every single one of us. Because the principal at the core of the United Nations is that all people, regardless of race, color, or creed, deserve to live lives of peace, free from the tyranny of sudden violence.
