Video Viewing and Producer Presentation: Madam Secretary: Nuclear War and National TV
April 10, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
We will feature a showing of the “Night Watch” episode of the TV show Madam Secretary along with a discussion facilitated by Alexander Maggio, writer/producer and political advisor for the CBS TV hit political drama series Madam Secretary.
The episode “Night Watch” depicts a dramatization of a false alarm nuclear attack on the US, and subsequent US-Russian diplomacy resulting in an arms control treaty. Maggio will talk about the use of TV as a vehicle to raise awareness of political and social issues. This event will provide information and promote discussion about actions concerned citizens can take to reduce the threat of nuclear war.
