Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will share the small-screen with her fictional counterpart this fall on the CBS drama "Madam Secretary. "
The one-time secretary of State will appear as herself to advise the show’s top diplomat — Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord — on “a sticky situation … threatening to fracture her relationship with [faux] President Conrad Dalton,” CBS said in a statement.
Albright, a Czech immigrant who served during the Clinton administration as the nation’s first female secretary of State, this week visited the set of "Madam Secretary."
A friend of the show from the beginning, Albright joined its cast and crew for a Washington, D.C., premiere of the pilot at the U.S. Institute of Peace last September. Season two of "Madam Secretary" is slated to debut on Oct. 4.
