Academy® and Emmy® award nominee, and Golden Globe® and BAFTA® winner Sigourney Weaver stars as Elaine Barrish Hammond.

Smart, politically savvy, and devoted to both family and country, onetime first lady and unsuccessful presidential candidate Elaine Barrish Hammond has found new purpose and popularity since divorcing her philandering husband and taking on the job of Secretary of State. Now out from under the shadow of her husband, Elaine proves herself to be a gifted politician with a fierce desire to right the wrongs of the world, whether in international diplomatic chambers or in her own living room. But brilliant as she is, balancing her political aspirations with the demands of her personal life will prove a continued challenge for Elaine, and the higher she climbs, the more her principles, her skill, and her family will be put to the test.
