Two-Time Grammy Award Winner Liz Phair joins as Composer

LOS ANGELES, CA � February 18, 2010 - Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner Rita Moreno ("Cane," "The Guardian") and 4-time Emmy winner Allison Janney ("The West Wing," "Juno") guest star in season 3 in the USA Network hit original series, IN PLAIN SIGHT, starring Mary McCormack, returning on its new night -- Wednesday, March 31 at 10/9c. Critically acclaimed actors Steven Weber ("Wings," "Studio 60"), Tess Harper ("No Country for Old Men," "Breaking Bad") and Josh Cooke ("Committed," "Four Kings") have also been cast to guest star.

Moreno guests as Raph's (Cristian de la Fuente) Aunt Rita who takes the town by storm, helping Mary and Raph plan their wedding. Janney guest stars as a newly-appointed US Marshal for the district who butts heads with Mary (McCormack). Weber stars in two episodes as a brilliant and charming FBI agent who has different point of view on the handling of federal witnesses. Harper will appear as a take-no-prisoners Federal Prosecutor who thinks a win in court is the most important thing -- despite the personal costs to a witness. And Cooke plays in the role of the very first witness of Mary and Marshall's (Frederick Weller) first case together.

On another creative front, two-time Grammy winner Liz Phair ("90210," "Swingtown") brings a whole new artistic element to an already strong creative team as the hit show's music composer. The singer/songwriter's debut album, Exile in Guyville, was enthusiastically praised upon its 1993 release. Phair went on to release multiple award-winning albums including whitechocolatespaceegg, Whip-smart and the self-titled Liz Phair.

As previously announced, showrunner John McNamara ("The Fugitive," "Eyes") has joined the show this year as writer/executive producer, helping to elevate the narrative drive, the production value and the production design.
