In Plain Sight on USA Network

Guest Author - Lizzie Flynn

USA Network is rolling out a growing lineup for the summer season. Alongside proven hits like “Monk” and “Law&Order: CI” comes “In Plain Sight”- an original USA series about a U.S. Marshal assigned to work with the Federal Witness Protection Program (WITSEC).

Mary McCormack stars as the passionate, yet emotionally unavailable, Mary Shannon. She and her partner Marshall Mann (played by Frederick Weller) help relocate, establish and protect federal witnesses. These witnesses include the criminals turning on their bosses as well as innocent bystanders who saw too much. The WITSEC’s Soutwest Region Chief Investigator, Stan McQueen (played by Paul Ben-Victor), tries to keep Mary and Marshall on a short leash, but often finds himself helping them bend the rules. They are all obligated to keep their jobs secret and that causes some friction with the Albuquerque Police Department.

Played by Todd Williams, Det. Robert Dershowitz often finds himself investigating homicides involving Mary’s charges. Of course he has no idea how Mary is involved with the victims or what her real job is. So their relationship starts off rocky and goes from there. Bobby D, as Det. Dershowitz is often called, finds himself both fond of and annoyed by Mary on a regular basis.

When she’s no arranging new lives for the protected or fighting with the Albuquerque P.D. she’s slowing being driven crazy by her family. Her mother, Jinx (played by Leslie Ann Warren), lost her job and moved in with Mary. The arrangement was only supposed to be for a couple of months, but those months turned into an entire year. Later, Mary’s sister, Brandi (played by Nichole Hiltz), moved in after she failed at getting rich quick by selling an entire suitcase of crystal meth. With a houseful of dysfunctional family members and a super-secret job, it’s little wonder that Mary has little time for her neglected boyfriend, Raphael (played by Cristián de la Fuente). Unfortunately, their time together seems to be relegated to a few quick moments of hot passion. Mary likes that arrangement because she doesn’t have to commit to anything with Raphael.

“In Plain Sight” looks to be yet another hit combination of high drama and comedy- a mix with which USA Network seems to excel. The premise of the show is fresh and interesting and abandons the trend detective work done in the dark and body parts strewn all over. Since it premiere’s in June, when the major networks are filling their time slots with game shows and more reality TV, drama fans will have plenty of time to become addicted to Mary, her job and her antics.

“In Plain Sight” premieres on USA Network on June 1, 2008 and will air regularly Sunday at 9EST/8 Central.
