In Plain Sight's Mary McCormack Joins NBC's Welcome To The Family Pilot image
NBCs Welcome to the Family, a multi-cultural comedy pilot from Rules of Engagements Mike Sikowitz, has added another face to the cast. The latest addition is In Plain Sights Mary McCormack.

TV Line says McCormack has signed on to play the role of Katrina, but doesnt tell us anything more about the character or how she relates to the storyline. The pilot centers on two families, one white and one Latino, who suddenly find themselves forced to bond when a romance and an unplanned pregnancy between their children pushes them together. It seems likely from the description that ethnic stereotypes and cultural misunderstandings will be the source of most of the laughs here, although I sincerely hope they can give it a fresh approach since its old, well-used (and often poorly used) material.

McCormack is best known for her role on In Plain Sight, but has other strong TV credits that include The West Wing and ER. Shes done some big screen work as well, including the thriller 1048 with John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. Her most recent movie was Shouldve Been Romeo alongside Ed Asner.

Welcome to the Family, which has a lot of competition from the many other comedy pilots in production this season at NBC, has also cast Glees Mike OMalley to play one of the soon-to-be grandparents to the surprise baby along with Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives), Ella Rae Peck (Deception), and Aramis Knight (Dexter). The single-camera project will be executve produced by Sikowitz.
