Mary McCormack is set to star opposite Mike O’Malley in Welcome To The Family, NBC‘s single-camera comedy from Mike Sikowitz and Sony TV. It chronicles how cultures collide when a white family and a Latino family are bonded together by their children who fall in love followed quickly by an unplanned pregnancy. O’Malley and McCormack play the pregnant girl’s parents Dan and Katrina, a loving mother who is the glue between her more volatile daughter and husband. Several pilots were interested in former In Plain Sight star McCormack, who opted to do a comedy for a second straight year. Last season, she toplined Kari Lizer’s ABC pilot. McCormack’s other series credits include The West Wing, Murder One and K Street. She is with Gersh and Untitled.
