Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) will be getting some valuable advice in an upcoming episode of Madam Secretary.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will be appearing in the episode as herself, CBS announced Tuesday. Albright will be advising Elizabeth on how to navigate a precarious situation with National Security Advisor Craig Sterling, who is threatening to harm her relationship with President Dalton (Keith Carradine).

Albright is the first woman to become the United States Secretary of State. She was unanimously confirmed to the position and served from 1997 to 2001.

Albright has already made a TV appearance as herself on Parks and Recration where she also gave Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) some advice on letting April (Aubrey Plaza) move on to a new job. She also appeared on Gilmore Girls as herself in a bizarre dream sequence. Take a look:

Madam Secretary returns on Oct. 4 at 8/7c on CBS.
