Watch Hillary Clinton Interview to Be Murphy Brown's New Secretary

The show that became a flashpoint in the US culture wars in 1992 returned to the air for the first time in 20 years with star Candice Bergen again playing the pioneering journalist. Instead, she was "Hilary", a woman who said she is often mistaken for the former presidential candidate but actually spells her name with only one "L". "I'm qualified and I'm ready on day one".

"For four years I was the secretary ... of a very large organization", Clinton replied.

Clinton made several wry references to her political career, telling Murphy that her technological acumen includes "some experience with emails" and referencing her 1996 book with the phrase "everyone works together, it takes a village".

Candice Bergen says she "owes" her "Murphy Brown" reboot to Donald Trump's election, but that's not the only history she has with the U.S. President.

Candice Bergen is seen speaking about the revival of Murphy Brown at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in August.


In the episode, Clinton's character was wearing her trademark pantsuit as she arrives for a secretarial position interview at Murphy Brown's cable news show "Murphy in the Morning".

Brown called Clinton "impressive" and "maybe overqualified" and told her she had to think it over. Most of the original cast returned for the revival, and so did the never-ending quest to find Murphy a secretary who will stick around.

The character later regrets it. I was home very early.

"This is why people don't trust the press anymore".
