In Plain Sight Preview: Season 3 Premiere

This week, USA is bringing back their original drama series In Plain Sight. We have some clips from the season premiere, including one that features guest star Donnie Wahlberg!

The premise of IPS is fairly simple. The series follows Mary McCormack, a U.S. marshal who works in the witness protection program. Her job is to keep people safe, which can often be fairly tricky and highly dangerous. Like most of USA’s other original series, In Plain Sight is the kind of show you can start watching mid-series. I say this because I think it’s worth checking out. The show’s about 2 parts action/mystery/suspense, 1 part family/relationship-drama and 1 part humor. Great characters and great stand-alone episode stories.

In the season premiere, with the help of her partner Marshall, Mary sets out to figure out who shot her. The episode guest stars Donnie Wahlberg.

Below is USA’s description for the series.

In Plain Sight stars Mary McCormack as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the highly secretive witness protection program (WITSEC). Her job is to relocate Federal Witnesses, some of whom are career criminals, and some of whom are innocents who had the misfortune of witnessing a crime. But they all have one thing in common - someone wants them dead. Mary's job is to make sure this doesn't happen, while at the same time dealing with her own dysfunctional family.In Plain Sight also stars Frederick Weller, Nichole Hiltz and Paul Ben-Victor, along with returning guest-stars Lesley Ann Warren, Cristian de la Fuente, and Joshua Malina.
