Our First Giveaway Is In Plain Sight

Every day convinces me more that whatever the future holds for television, it's going to premiere first on basic cable. The USA cable network just solidifies that belief. USA is the home to some of the more offbeat versions of the standard cop show. Brilliant detectives with OCD or con man cops posing as psychics were too quirky to pitch to mainstream networks, but Monk and Psych proved themselves on USA. Now, they're enjoying success in the mainstream, albeit in reruns, on NBC.

In Plain Sight is USA's newest entry into the genre the network does so well.

Catch the new series premiere on Sunday, June 1st on USA NETWORK, 10pm/9c. USA Network's newest original series stars Mary McCormack (Private Parts and The West Wing) as Mary Shannon. Her friends and family think she's just a glorified courier, but she's actually a U.S. Marshal, working for the highly secretive Witness Protection Program. Her job is to help relocate federal witnesses. Whether they're career criminals, or just people who had he misfortune to witness a crime, they all share one thing in common – somebody wants them dead. Co-starring Frederick Weller and Lesley Ann Warren.

I'm not given to hyperbole, but the pilot for this series is good-- I mean, really good. I'm so excited about it, I'm offering you a chance to be the first and only kid on your block to own an official USA branded gift bag commemorating the debut:
