Patina Miller in "Madam Secretary"

This fall, catch some of your favorite Carnegie Mellon University alumni on television during prime time. Among the newest faces to the small screen is Tony Award®-winning actress Patina Miller (A'06) who will be joined by Geoffrey Arend and Corey Cott (A'12) on the set of "Madam Secretary."

The drama follows female Secretary of State Elizabeth Faulkner McCord (Tea Leoni) as she tries to balance her personal and professional life.

Several actors were part of two movies being produced as part of the Starz reality show "The Chair," where two directors used the same script to come up with wildly different movies. Zachary Quinto (A'99), Corey Moosa (A'00) and Neal Dodson (A'00) are among the producers on the show.
