Fairly Legal and In Plain Sight Coming to Fridays on USA

The Fairly Legal cast
USA has announced that Fairly Legal and In Plain Sight will be back on the air Friday, March 16 at 9 and 10 p.m. eastern.  The network says Fridays have been lucky for it since Monk, Psych and most recently White Collar started out on Fridays.

In the second season of Fairly Legal, mediator Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi) has a new conflict – and potential hot romance - in the form of the sharp, hustling, up-and-coming trial attorney Ben Grogan (new series regular Ryan Johnson). Hired by managing partner Lauren Reed (Virginia Williams) to save the firm on the verge of collapse, Ben’s presence adds fuel to Kate’s already at-odds relationship with her same-aged stepmother and puts pressure on her relationship with soon-to-be-ex-husband Justin Patrick (Michael Trucco). While Ben’s ambulance chasing ways represent everything Kate hates about lawyers, USA is claiming there will be sexual tension and chemistry.

Fairly Legal has a new producer/director this season, USA veteran Anton Cropper.

The fifth and final season of In Plain Sight will build up to what its producers are calling "an unforgettable finale." Can Mary (Mary McCormack) balance motherhood with a demanding profession or will she put her baby up for adoption? Will Marshall (Frederick Weller) finally be truthful about his feelings for Mary? What will come of Brandi (Nichole Hiltz) and Peter (Josh Malina)? Mary will also grapple with the the question that continues to haunt her -- where is the father who abandoned her?

In Plain Sight stars McCormack as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the Witness Protection Program (WITSEC), which relocates federal witnesses.

USA finished 2011 as the #1 cable network for the sixth consecutive year, and is currently the home to ten original scripted series, including those above and: Burn Notice, Common Law, Covert Affairs, Necessary Roughness, Royal Pains, and Suits. The network recently announced three pilot pickups: Local Talent, a half-hour comedy pilot starring Nathan Lane, Cheyenne Jackson, Ken Jenkins, Caroline Rhea, Laura Bell Bundy and Richard Kohnke; Paging Dr. Freed, a half-hour comedy; The Untitled Jeff Eastin Project, a one-hour drama, starring Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren and Manny Montana.
