Commander in Chief is an American political drama television series that focused on the fictional administration and family of Mackenzie Allen (portrayed by Geena Davis), the first female President of the United States, who ascends to the post from the Vice Presidency after the death of the sitting President from a sudden cerebral aneurysm.
President Allen faces her first international crisis when nine undercover DEA agents are killed in the fictitious South American country of San Pasquale. In the meantime, the First Gentleman begins coaching vice presidential nominee Warren Keaton for his upcoming confirmation hearings and Horace and Becca begin their new terms in a public school.
The President orders the Air Force and the DEA to destroy coca fields in San Pasquale and calls for the people of the country to ask for the arrest of General Sanchez, the dictator of San Pasquale. Before the attack begins, the military of the country overthrows Sanchez. Juan Duran, San Pasquale’s exiled president, is asked to return to power.
