It's a time of change for the fourth season of In Plain Sight.
Characters are changing. The marshall's office has a new muffin-bearing officer.
And Mary Shannon's pregnancy hasn't even been dealt with yet.
Here's the second part of that interview.
Half of this season of In Plain Sight already had been shot when McCormack announced she was pregnant in real-life. McCormack and her husband producer Michael Morris are expecting their third child; they have two daughters.
Will this new development make Mary Shannon even grumpier?
The WITSEC background helps, too.
“People starting over completely, saying goodbye to their lives before. That never ends in terms of story opportunities.”

The good people who arrange the annual Malice Domestic conference are impressively organized. The 2011 conference in Bethesda, Maryland, just ended a couple of weeks ago -- probably some of those who attended haven't even unpacked -- and already the details for the 2012 conference are up.
That is inspiring. Makes me want to reorganize all my drawers and kitchen shelves.
Malice Domestic is one of my favorite conferences but, unfortunately, I haven't been able to attend for about five years because of other conflicts and timing. But I want to get back there as I always enjoyed the conference.
Malice Domestic celebrates the traditional mystery, such as those written by Agatha Christie.
As much as I admire Christie's work, I think that today's authors of the traditional mystery have surpassed even Dame Christie's work.
Many traditional mysteries come down to family relations, workplace situations and daily life.
The amateur sleuth novels that revolve around occupations give us an insider's window to worlds we are curious about.
Those are exactly the types of novels that the 2012 Malice guests of honor write.

Mystery writers not only are among the nicest people around but they also are eager to help those in need.
Each of the authors who writes the Criminal Minds blog has donated signed copies of their latest novels to be auctioned off en masse on eBay.
Here's where to place a bid.
