TV Series, Madam Secretary

Aloha Everyone,

Madam Secretary is a political drama aired from September 21, 2014 to December 8, 2019.

It is an intelligent and thought-provoking drama series which incorporated real national and international events. One episode in particular mirrored real events and characters. The story was about Ang Sang Sun Kyi of Myanmar. Once idolized by the world as a democratic leader and won the Nobel Peace Prize for her non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights.

After her mishandling of mostly Muslim Polingys minority, Ang Sang Sun Kyi was arrested. Followed by a military coup, she remains in jail. While the Madam Secretary series has terminated, the real-life story of Ang Sang Suu Kyi is unfinished. She is still very popular with Myanmar’s Buddhist majority.

Aloha -- Cathi
