Plot Synopsis

This one-hour drama series explores the personal and professional life of maverick female Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, as she drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics and balances a complex family life. Elizabeth is married to Henry, a professor of medieval religious history, and they have three children: teenager Jason, a budding anarchist; his popular sister, Alison; and oldest daughter Stevie, who has returned home after dropping out of college. Elizabeth's staff, helmed by Chief of Staff Nadine Tolliver, includes: Blake, a young and loyal assistant, who is the only person on staff Elizabeth actually hired; speechwriter Matt; and press coordinator Daisy. Morgan Freeman is an executive producer of MADAM SECRETARY. This series premiered on Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 8:30pm ET/8pm PT. MADAM SECRETARY returned for its second season on Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. In the season opener, "The Show Must Go On," Elizabeth must take the oath of office when the President's plane disappears over the Pacific Ocean. Also, Henry is asked to recruit one of his Russian students to work for the U.S. government by Jane Fellows, his new Defense Intelligence Agency handler.
