Shrewd, determined, and perceptive, Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) is a brilliant college professor and former CIA Analyst with a flair for thinking outside the box. When the US Secretary of State dies under suspicious circumstances, President Conrad Dalton handpicks Elizabeth to be his successor. Not one to compromise easily, she immediately clashes with members of the President's cabinet, and must rely on her diplomatic finesse to battle office politics and tackle global and domestic issues - circumventing official protocol if need be. Her crack team are there to support her, as is her equally capable husband Henry. However, in Elizabeth's world, politics and diplomacy are just as likely to be found in the home as the White House.
