USA NETWORK RECLAIMS SUNDAY NIGHTS THIS SUMMER WITH NEW ORIGINAL SERIES 'IN PLAIN SIGHT' AND ALL-NEW EPISODES OF RETURNING FAVORITE 'LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT'

Premiering this Summer on Sunday, June 8

NEW YORK � February 29, 2008 � USA Network, the #1 network in basic cable, announced today that it will reclaim Sunday nights in dramatic fashion this summer with back-to-back original series, featuring the veteran hit LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, continuing season seven on Sunday, June 8 at 9/8c, and the newest in USA's roster of bold originals, IN PLAIN SIGHT, premiering immediately following at 10/9c.

IN PLAIN SIGHT stars Mary McCormack ("The West Wing," "Private Parts") as Mary Shannon, a U.S. Marshal working in the highly secretive branch of the witness protection program (WITSEC) who relocates Federal Witnesses - many of them who are career criminals, and many who are innocents that had the misfortune of witnessing a crime. They all have one thing in common � someone wants them dead. Mary's job is to see that doesn't happen, while at the same time attempting to manage her own dysfunctional family. IN PLAIN SIGHT also stars Frederick Weller ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "The Shape of Things"), Lesley Ann Warren ("Desperate Housewives," "Will & Grace"), Nichole Hiltz ("NYPD Blue," "Strong Medicine"), Paul Ben-Victor ("The Wire," "Entourage"), Cristian de la Fuente (upcoming in "Dancing With The Stars," "Side Order of Life," "Ugly Betty"), and Todd Williams ("Tilt," "Third Watch"). IN PLAIN SIGHT was created and written by David Maples ("Home Improvement," "Huff"), who serves as executive producer alongside Paul Stupin ("Dawson's Creek," "Beautiful People") and comes from Universal Media Studios.

LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT takes viewers into the minds of its criminals while following the psychological approaches the Major Case Squad uses to solve the crimes. The squad investigates high-profile cases, usually homicides, such as those involving VIPS, local government officials and employees, the financial industry and the art world. Criminal Intent differs from other series in the "Law & Order" franchise because it gives a great amount of attention to the actions and motives of the criminals, rather than showing (almost exclusively) the police and prosecution's side of the case. The show stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Chris Noth, Kathryn Erbe, Julianne Nicholson and Eric Bogosian. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Media Studios and is Dick Wolf's third installment of the "Law & Order" brand, the second-longest running drama series in the history of television. Wolf, Warren Leight, Peter Jankowski and Norberto Barba are executive producers.
