The Pitch: When the Secretary of State dies in a mysterious plane crash, the President of the United States Conrad Dalton appoints Elizabeth Faulkner McCord (Téa Leoni), an old friend, to the post. McCord who previously worked for the C.I.A. takes on the job and has to juggle her personnel and professional.
Review: The show is a kind of hybrid show that they’re calling it a drama but in my opinion it’s not just that. It’s light, witty, funny with a hint of drama and a touch of thriller-mystery.
It’s a serious show but Leoni brings the second degree fun element to it and that’s why I liked the show, well the pilot. I’ll go as far to say that the only thing setting this show apart from the other shows that could be compare to Madame Secretary is Leoni’s performance and the cast they assembled.
I think I’m going to watch this show, I would just like to know what do you guys think about it?
