Tea Leoni stars as the new Secretary of State for the USA after the old Secretary was killed in a plane crash. She comes from a life as a history professor and before that a CIA agent where she was trained by the now president. She is married and has 3 kids. Can she balance her new life and family?
This episode deals with her first few months in office and the capture of two American students in Syria and how she plans on getting them back. Will the President see it her way? Will she be able to get passed the Chief of Staff?
I think Leoni can do well in this role especially with a strong supporting cast with actors such as Tim Daly and Bebe Neuwirth. The first episode was reminiscent of The West Wing which is among my all time favorites. I look foward to seeing where this government drama goes.Grade: A-
