‘Madam Secretary’ Season 5 Lands December UK TV Premiere Date On Sky Witness

Madam Secretary will return for its 5th Season on Sky Witness this December on the UK broadcaster has announced.

‘Madam Secretary’ stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, determined secretary of state who drives international diplomacy 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, 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 not even acknowledge there is a box.

The Season 5 premiere begins following the aftermath of a deadly attack on the White House. This leaves Elizabeth trying to keep a major nuclear disarmament deal from falling apart while a manhunt for the attackers brings D.C. to a halt. For advice, Elizabeth turns to former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright, Hillary Clinton and Colin Powell.

“Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle,” commented Exec Producer Lori McCreary, on the coup of getting 3 real-life secretaries of state on the drama. “We welcome Secretary Albright, Secretary Clinton and General Powell to the ‘Madam Secretary’ family!”

Madam Secretary‘ Season 5 premieres Thursday, 13th December 2018 at 9pm on Sky Witness.
