Madam Secretary coming to Ten

Ten’s back quarter is looking more interesting with each show announcement.

In her first major television role in 16 years, Téa Leoni (Deep Impact, The Naked Truth) stars in the new drama series, Madam Secretary.

 College professor and former CIA analyst, Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) returns to public life at the request of the US President, Conrad Dalton (Keith Carradine), following the suspicious death of her predecessor.

 The shrewd, determined newly-appointed Secretary of State battles office politics and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home.

 Leoni leads a stellar cast including Tim Daly (The Fugitive, Private Practice), Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers, Frasier), Zeljko Ivanek (Damages), Erich Bergen (Gossip Girl, Persons Of Interest) and Geoffrey Arend (Body of Proof).
