On Thursday, I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A with John Straus and Ed Decter, who have taken over the reins of USA Network’s In Plain Sight [Sundays, 10/9C], which is now in its fourth season.
We talked a bit about their background, and a bit about coming into a established series as showrunners – and got an idea of what we can look forward to during In Plain Sight’s fourth season.
After you check out what they had to say, catch this week’s episode, Crazy Like a Witness, guest-starring Bradley Whitford as a paranoid ex-military man who’s blowing the whistle on a Blackwater-type company. And remember, just because you’re paranoid, that doesn’t mean they’re not after you.

For its fourth season, USA’s In Plain Sight [Sundays, 10/9C] returns to its original timeslot with an episode that is a bit of a departure. The Art of the Steal finds Marshal Mary Shannon fearing that her sister, Brandi, has become involved in grand theft auto [again!] – and seeks advice and insight from a car thief in the WITSEC program in Albuquerque.

When USA Network’s hit series In Plain Sight [Sundays, 10/9C] returns this weekend, it marks a sea change in the life of its female lead, Deputy U.S. Marshal Mary Shannon [and we all know how much Mary loves change… not!] – plus plenty of pithy commentary on the subject of change by her partner, Deputy U.S. Marshal Marshall Mann [who has a big change in his life, as well…].
For the fourth consecutive year, I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference Q&A session with series stars Mary McCormack and Fred Weller about the upcoming season. For the comedy stylings of McCormack & Weller, just follow the jump.

In Plain Sight [USA, Wednesdays, 10/9C] is a unique series – even for USA where the motto is Characters welcome. The lead is a strong, cynical woman [Mary Shannon, played by Mary McCormack] who, along with her partner [Marshall Mann, played by Fred Weller], works for the U.S. Marshals in the Witness Protection Program [WITSEC]. It’s a unique job in that Marshals in WITSEC can’t talk about their jobs away from work. People’s lives depend on that.
McCormack and Weller make a very good team on the show – and their chemistry is palpable even off screen – as this teleconference Q&A shows.

A few days ago, I was able to take part in a Q&A session with Fred Weller, who plays Marshal Marshall Mann on the USA Network’s hit show, In Plain Sight [Sundays, 10-9C]. Marshall may be Mary Shannon’s partner, but he is an interesting character in his own right – as is the man who plays him. One thing that is almost immediately apparent, is that both share a dry sense of humor.
Also taking part in the session were: Jamie Steniberg [Starry Constellation], Troy Rogers [thedeadbolt.com], Chandra Williams [TVJolts.com], Beth Ann Henderson [nicegirlstv.com], Jamie Ruby [Media Blvd], and Kendra White [no affiliation mentioned…].
