Basic info and plot
Madam Secretary is a new American political drama TV series that follows a former CIA analyst and college professor, who has been promoted to the post of U.S. Secretary of State. Created by Barbara Hall, produced by Barbara Hall Productions, Revelations Entertainment and CBS Television Studios, and executive produced by Lori McCreary, Tracy Mercer, Barbara Hall, Tea Leoni, David Grae and Morgan Freeman, the series debuted on CBS in September 2014, and season 3 premiered on October 2, 2106
Madam Secretary tells the story of Elizabeth Adams McCord (Tea Leoni) who has been a CIA analyst for 20 years before starting her career as a professor of political science at the University of Virginia. Elizabeth is superbly bright, but is not a natural politician — so when her old boss Conrad Dalton (Keith Carradine) becomes the President of the United States and needs to replace a Secretary of State, who recently died in a plane crash, Elizabeth returns to Washington DC and steps up to assume the role. Drama ensues as Elizabeth clashes with the White House Chief of Staff Russell Jackson (Zeljko Ivanek). The third season features her in the midst of several international crises, as well as White House political intrigue.
Viewership ratings and renewal potential
This is an example of yet another successful political drama series on the CBS roster of prime time programming. Madam Secretary season 2 averaged over 10 million viewers, and season 3 premiered to 9.2 million viewers and a 1.1 demo rating. Garnering several nominations at various awards ceremonies, the show did not manage to win any so far. It has been met with mostly positive reviews, and seems solid, yet unremarkable, although definitely with a potential for the future. Please stay tuned, and we will inform you when CBS makes a decision on the fate of Madam Secretary.
