When it comes to prisoner negotiations, international aid, and thwarting the next world war, look no further than U.S. Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni). Since joining the White House staff, she's seen her fair share of global threats, but her greatest challenges lie ahead. While she and her husband Henry (Tim Daly) must outsmart their own personal stalker, new enemies emerge both overseas and in the states.
Working alongside President Conrad Dalton (Keith Carradine), Elizabeth proves not even the commander-in-chief can save the world alone. As Chief of Staff Russell Jackson (Željko Ivanek) ramps up his efforts at home to get Dalton reelected, a personal crisis brings him to face his own mortality. Thankfully, Elizabeth's unwavering team, led by Nadine Tolliver (Bebe Neuwirth), helps keep the cabinet on their feet and the nation under control. In times like these, only one thing is certain: we need a woman like Elizabeth McCord!
