Hillary Clinton to Guest Star on “Madam Secretary”

Season 5 premiere of Madame Secretary has tapped real-life political personas as guest stars. 

Former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell, and Madeleine Albright will be appearing on the premiere of CBS’ political drama. 

The news was confirmed on the series’ official Twitter channel. 

“We’ve got some BIG guest stars in store for Season 5! Former Secretaries of State @HillaryClinton, @Madeleine, and Colin Powell will be appearing on the season premiere of #MadamSecretary on Sunday, October 7!” was the captioned alongside a photo of Téa Leoni on the set of what looks like the Oval Office looking cozy next to Clinton, Powell and Albright. 

“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” Barbara Hall, executive producer and series creator, said in a statement. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”

While Albright has already appeared on the show, it will be a first for Clinton.

“Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling,” added executive producer Lori McCreary. “And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle. We welcome Secretary Albright, Secretary Clinton and General Powell to the Madam Secretary family!”
