It's an Ingenious Way to Hide

There’s USA Network's new original series In Plain Sight starring Mary McCormack as a US Marshall in charge of protecting and helping relocated federal witnesses adjust to their new identities and lives. “In Plain Sight” offers more than the usual fascination of crime or detective genre shows because beyond the investigating and solving of crimes, it also lets viewers peek into one of the favorite “what if” scenarios (it’s right up there with “what if you won a million dollars”). Many of us wonder what it would be like to assume a new identity, completely leaving the old one behind or even to lead a double life, simultaneously portraying two characters. Throw in the danger of being discovered and you’ve got yourself a thoroughly thrilling watch. To prep you for the premier airing of “In Plain Sight” on June 1, 2008, I’ve posted an image of Mary on my blog for you to spot.
