Madam Secretary (TV-PG, 2014)
Madam Secretary stars Tea Leoni as Elizabeth McCord who is tapped by the President to become Secretary of State. The series follows the McCord family as they together navigate the joys and challenges of a life in public service.
Elizabeth McCord strives to be an inspiring leader with a can-do attitude and a strong moral compass. While the plot includes violence and more adult topics, the show avoids graphic scenes and keeps the language pretty clean.
There is some implied sex/drinking but it is not a central part of the storyline.
Madam Secretary is available to stream on Netflix. Get ready to dig into this engaging political drama.
Common Sense Media recommends the show for ages 14+.
10. A Family Drama
Parenthood (TV-14, 2010)
Parenthood follows each member for the Braverman clan as they learn and grow as a family. The show follows this family as they navigate so many ups and downs but one thing remains, the bond they share as Braverman’s.
The show does cover some more adult topics such as sexuality, cancer, drugs, and more, making the show a better choice for teens or older. Overall the show is a quality drama that reinforces the idea that family bonds matter.
Parenthood is available to stream on Hulu.
Common Sense Media recommends the show for ages 15+.
