“Just shot CBS pilot Madam Secretary w/ Tea Leoni & Tim Daly. Good stuff.” William Sadler tweeted last week. The drama pilot centers on the personal and professional life of a maverick female secretary of state Elizabeth McGill (Tea Leoni) as she drives international diplomacy, wrangles office politics and balances a complex family life.
Bebe Neuwirth, Tim Daly, Erich Bergen and Patina Miller are also starring in CBS’ political drama pilot, which was created and written by Barbara Hall (Homeland, Joan of Arcadia).
Barbara Hall is executive producing the project alongside Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and Tracy Mercer.
