Upfronts 2014: CBS’ Madam Secretary (First Look)

May 16, 2014
Madam Secretary. CBS.

Madam Secretary. CBS.

SHOW: Madam Secretary, drama

WHO: Tea Leoni (The Naked Truth), Tim Daly (Private Practice), Bebe Neuwirth (Blue Bloods), Geoffrey Arend (Body of Proof), Zeljko Ivanek, (Revolution) Patina Miller, Erich Bergen, Evan Roe, Katherine Herzer

WHAT: Explores the personal and professional life of a maverick female Secretary of State as she drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics and balances a complex family life.

WHEN: Sundays at 8:o0PM EST


BOTTOM LINE: In theory, this will be one of the best shows of the new season. I think they want to be The West Wing so badly, but I don’t see the gravitas of The West Wing. And, while Leoni has a good look for TV, she is the lowest-energy actress on the planet. Oh, what Alfre Woodard could have done in this role… That being said, of course, I’ll be tuning in, hoping for the best.
