USA Network's 'Psych' Brings Aboard Oscar Winner Deadline
An Oscar-winning actress is joining USA Network's dramedy series "Psych." Deadline.com reports that the detective show is adding Mira Sorvino in a multi-episode arc.
Sorvino will join the eighth season in its seventh episode, portraying the Santa Barbara Police Department's new head detective, Betsy Brannigan. Her character is described as sweet, yet tough, a woman who loves scrapbooking yet can take down ruthless lawbreakers, the story says.
Sorvino won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the 1995 Woody Allen film "Mighty Aphrodite," and is well-known for her work in other features including "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" and "Mimic."
It's believed that the 10 episodes making up the show's eighth season will likely be the final run for "Psych," the piece adds.
