Téa Leoni & 'Madam Secretary' Costume designer

Here's a brief mention of Téa Leoni on Madam Secretary

Tom Broecker
Costume designer, Tom Broecker, talks about his work on the Netflix series 'House of Cards,' and Philip Seymour Hoffman's final role. Remember that bit on "Saturday Night Live" with Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri as the Spartan cheerleaders who performed some really uncouth routines? For those of you who are too young to remember, YouTube it. But those of you who have "Spartan Spirit" can thank costume designer and Carmel native Tom Broecker. He's designed costumes for nearly 300 episodes of "SNL" and his latest work on David Fincher's Emmy Award-winning HBO series, "House of Cards," won him his first Costume Designers Guild Award this year.

The Star recently caught up with Broecker on the phone from New York where he's working on costumes for a new TV drama called "Madame Secretary" starring Tea Leoni and Tim Daly.
Question: You've been nominated for six Primetime Emmy Awards and four Costume Designers Guild Awards for your work on "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live." Why do you think "House of Cards" earned you your first win?

Answer: I think it was just so consistent. It was sort of like a 13-hour movie, so you could see growth, and you could see a character develop, and you could see the longevity of how something was designed for 13 hours. And I think it was just so different. There wasn't anything on TV that had that sort of flavor. Robin is such an interesting character, and no one on TV is like her. No one on TV looks like her. (Her style) struck a chord with a lot of people.

Q: What's it like having to dress people like Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright?

A: Robin's a dream come true. We have such a great relationship and a great rapport. We have this thing where I feel like she's my sister from a different family. We met each other and it was instantly like, "Oh my god, I want to be around you all the time." It's nice when that happens. I'm working on this pilot right now with Tea Leoni, and we have the same relationship. I love her.
