P&G signs to be sole sponsor


USA Network announced that Procter & Gamble will present the premier of the new scripted series “In Plain Sight” as sole sponsor on Sunday, June 8th with limited commercial interruptions. Shot on location in and around Albuquerque, NM, In Plain Sight will premiere with a 76-minute episode, followed by 11 one-hour episodes.

Mary McCormack stars as Mary Shannon, a US Marshal working in the highly secretive branch of the witness protection program who relocates Federal Witnesses — many of them who are career criminals, and many who are innocents that had the misfortune of witnessing a crime. They all have one thing in common – someone wants them dead. Mary’s job is to see that doesn’t happen, while at the same time attempting to manage her own dysfunctional family. The series also stars Frederick Weller, Lesley Ann Warren, Nichole Hiltz, Paul Ben-Victor, Cristian de la Fuente and Todd Williams ("Tilt," "Third Watch").

In Plain Sight comes from NBC Universal Cable Studios. The series was created and written by David Maples, who serves as executive producer alongside Paul Stupin.
