The USA network series In Plain Sight will be returning for seasons 4 and 5, it has just been announced.
titleLike the other series on the USA, In Plain Sight revels in unusual characters who are believable.
But unlike other USA series, In Plain Sight is a female-driven drama.
The series stars Mary McCormick as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal in the Witness Protection Program. She and the other marshals contend with the personalities of those forced into the witness protection. Some stories are outlandish, some are heartbreaking and some are poignant. But none are dull.
In Plain Sight, which is filmed in New Mexico, also stars Frederick Weller and Paul Ben-Victor.
In Plain Sight is also about the personal life of Mary Shannon which is always in tatters -- a quirky mother, Jinx, played by Lesley Ann Warren, a sister whose choice in boyfriends is never good and who may be following in the footsteps of their an absent, criminal father.  At the end of season 3, Mary Shannon started a relationship with FBI agent Mike Faber, played by the always reliable Steven Weber.
The first two seasons of In Plain Sight are now on DVD.
