Madam Secretary has found its off network home. Starting March 7, episodes of the drama will also air on WE tv. Following its off-network premiere, the series will air all-day marathons every Wednesday. New episodes of the drama will return on March 11.
WE tv revealed more about the arrival of the CBS drama on their network in a press release. Check that out below.
“WE tv will begin airing the American political drama series executive produced by Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary, Madam Secretary, starting Wednesday, March 7th from 7:00pm-4:00 am ET/PT. Beginning the following week, Wednesday, March 14, the series will air during all-day binge-a-thons on Wednesdays from 10am-4:00am ET/PT.
The political drama explores Secretary Elizabeth McCord’s (Tea Leoni) life as the determined United States Secretary of State. As Secretary of State, McCord drives international diplomacy, battles office politics and circumvents protocol as she negotiates global and domestic issues, both at the White House and at home. A college professor and a brilliant former CIA analyst who left for ethical reasons, Elizabeth returned to public life at the request of President Conrad Dalton (Keith Carradine), who values McCord’s apolitical leanings, deep knowledge of the Middle East, flair for languages and ability to not just think outside the box, but to not even acknowledge there is a box. McCord’s team includes chief of staff Nadine Tolliver (Bebe Neuwirth); policy advisor Jay Whitman (Sebastian Arcelus); speechwriter Matt Mahoney (Geoffrey Arend); press coordinator Daisy Grant (Patina Miller); and charming assistant Blake Moran (Erich Bergen). As McCord debates third world problems, finesses foreign dignitaries at work and does battle with the president’s combative chief of staff, Russell Jackson (Zeljko Ivanek) that’s just a warm-up for when she goes home to her supportive husband, theology professor turned intelligence operative Henry (Tim Daly), and their three children, where ‘politics’ and ‘compromise’ take on a new meaning.
