USA Network has picked up the pilot “Mary Sunshine” to series, ordering 11 additional episodes of the light drama starring Mary McCormack, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, previously known as “In Plain Sight,” centers on Mary Shannon (McCormack), a U.S. Marshal who tries to balance her intense job at the witness-protection program with her equally intense and amusingly dysfunctional personal life.
The project hails from writer David Maples and NBC Universal Network TV. To accommodate star McCormack’s pregnancy, production on the series is slated to begin in the summer for a launch in the fourth quarter or first-quarter 2008.
“Mary” co-stars Lesley Ann Warren, Frederick Weller, Todd Williams and Nichole Hiltz.
