Here’s another reason to be excited for the upcoming season 5 premiere of Madam Secretary at the Sony Channel on Monday, October 8 at 9PM! The political series will open their latest season with the guest appearances of former secretaries of state Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright and General Colin Powell.
In this unprecedented episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, played by award-winning actress Téa Leoni, turns to the former real-life secretaries of state to ask their advice on how best to respond to a delicate situation.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said Barbara Hall, Executive Producer and Series Creator. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Lori McCreary, Executive Producer added, “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. The fact that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle. We welcome Secretary Albright, Secretary Clinton and General Powell to the Madam Secretary family!”
Madeleine Albright, the first woman to become Secretary of State, held the position from 1997 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. General Colin Powell served as Secretary of State from 2001 until 2005 under President George Bush. Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013 under President Barack Obama.
