USA Network has picked up the drama pilot, Mary Sunshine starring Mary McCormack.
The cable network has ordered 11 additional episodes of the show that centers on Mary Shannon (McCormack). The Hollywood Reporter says she plays a U.S. Marshall who tries to balance her intense job at the witness-protection program with her equally intense and amusingly dysfunctional personal life. It also stars Lesley Ann Warren, Frederick Weller, Todd Williams and Nichole Hiltz.
David Maples wrote Mary Sunshine; to accommodate McCormack's pregnancy, production on the series is scheduled to begin in the summer for a late 2007 or early 2008 air date.
