In the Madam Secretary episode “The New Normal,” while Henry McCord (Tim Daly) gives a speech to an evangelical group about climate change, his wife, presidential candidate, Secretary Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni), learns a super typhoon is about to wipe out a small Pacific island. McCord and her team, including assistant Nina Cummings, do their best to relocate the island’s population before the storm makes landfall.
Elizabeth McCord’s new assistant Nina Cummings on Madam Secretary is portrayed by Tracee Chimo Pallero. She’s known for her roles on Orange Is the New Black (Neri Feldman), Genius (Gertrude Stein), Difficult People (Gaby), People of Earth (Chelsea Healey), and in the films Sully with Tom Hanks (as Evelyn May) and The Five-Year Engagement with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt (as Margaret), among others. Madam Secretary airs Sundays at 10 pm on CBS, right after NCIS: Los Angeles. [NOTE: Stream any CBS show through Amazon Prime or CBS ALL-ACCESS. Both options offer free trials.]
