Making its debut next Monday on NBC, STATE OF AFFAIRS is a political drama set in the White House and centered on a female President (ALFRE WOODARD) and her most trusted adviser, a complicated CIA analyst (KATHERINE HEIGL) charged with scoping out and thwarting national security threats.
Another in what seems to be a rash of ‘bold heroine’ series, STATE OF AFFAIRS marks a return to prime-time television for HEIGL, who took a few years off to try her hand at making movies for the big-screen. For WOODARD, it’s business as usual. A Golden Globe winner, the actress has been Emmy-nominated 17 times and won twice. Between TV series’ and movies, she keeps active with big-screen and stage work.
We recently sat down with ALFRE WOODARD, who filled us in on what she finds exciting about STATE OF AFFAIRS.
STATE OF AFFAIRS premieres November 17 on NBC.
