Los Angeles, June 25 (IANS) Veteran actor and executive producer of American political drama TV series “Madam Secretary” Morgan Freeman says the show brings forward a fictional story with a system and a government that everyone aspires to have in the real world.
“Madam Secretary” — a political drama — has been created by Barbara Hall and executive produced by Lori McCreary and Freeman. “Madam Secretary” is aired in India on AXN India channel.
Asked what sets “Madam Secretary” apart from other political dramas, Freeman said the answer lies in a “positive” storyline.
“We are going to have a government that we want to have in this show. We have a President who stated he thinks he can make a positive difference in the world.
