Actor Tim Daly broke both of his legs while vacationing in Sundance. The writers at “Madam Secretary” may have to rewrite part of the show’s current season. Daly is scheduled for surgery today to repair the damage caused by a skiing accident, and he’s expected to need from six to eight weeks to fully recover.
The “Madam Secretary” producers have a choice – they can either incorporate Tim’s injury into the storyline or they could shoot around him. Either way, they’re expecting him to be in every episode of the show. He plays the husband of the Secretary of State, who’s played by Téa Leoni.
An inside source said that the show may be far enough along in its shooting schedule that few changes could be needed.
