Madam Secretary, Nuclear Threats and International Security

Tea Leoni as Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord

Madam Secretary, which starred Téa Leoni as Elizabeth McCord, a former CIA analyst who becomes U.S. secretary of state (and eventually president), mixed Washington politics with international intrigue and even some old-fashioned family domestic drama during its six-season run on CBS.

Secretary McCord negotiated several global nuclear treaties (China/Russia and India/Pakistan), and managed risky international situations and domestic terrorist dangers with wise aplomb.
