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.
