New NBC Comedy Casts Female Lead THR
A comedy project in the works at NBC has cast an actress from a USA drama series as its female lead. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that Mary McCormack, who starred in USA's "In Plain Sight" for five seasons, will co-star in the comedy pilot "Welcome to the Family."
The project is about a white family and a Latino family who are joined when two of their children fall in love and have an unplanned pregnancy, the story says.
McCormack, whose credits also include “Murder One” and “The West Wing,” will play Katrina Yoder, the wife of Mike O'Malley's Dan, who tries to understand her teenage daughter, Molly, the story says.
