Meet Morgan Freeman, the Executive Producer Behind Madam Secretary

Meet Morgan Freeman, the Executive Producer Behind Madam Secretary
That Morgan Freeman: never able to get a word out for all his notorious laughing.

Last night, Morgan Freeman’s voice paid a visit to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The producer of Madam Secretary was recently awarded the National Medal of Arts in the United States – a great honour for any artist – but passed on the ceremony because Barack Obama didn’t pay him the courtesy of a phone call.

Nevertheless, Freeman lived up to his type-cast type and offered some very insightful words of wisdom that everyone can apply to every-day life (hint: it’s about bees and horses).

But Morgan Freeman couldn’t help but get down to the nuts and bolts of it: here’s the scoop on where Madam Secretary came from, why it’s important, and why you should watch it:
