LOS ANGELES >> “Madam Secretary” won’t lack secretaries of state this fall.
CBS on Tuesday announced former secretaries Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell will appear on drama’s fifth season premiere on Oct. 7.
CBS says star Tea Leoni, in her role as Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord, seeks their advice.
Clinton tweeted it was wonderful to spend some time on the set.
It was wonderful to spend some time with the team from @MadamSecretary on set in Brooklyn with a few former colleagues. Mark your calendars for October 7th! https://t.co/8GdHBx4T7Q— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 24, 2018
