A pioneer for women in law enforcement, Mary Shanley joined the NYPD in 1931, quickly becoming a Gotham all-star and tabloid sensation. During her 30-year career, she worked undercover to achieve a staggering 1000 career arrests, became the fourth woman in history to make detective 1st grade, and then nearly lost it all. Capturing her at a major crossroads of career, identity, and love — her most elusive culprit of all — DEAD SHOT MARY grapples with the legend of this trail blazer, a maverick, and a true New York original.

DEAD SHOT MARY features Rachel McPhee as the inimitable Mary Shanley. The NYC-based actress, who was part of the Vieux Carre company at The Pearl (dir. Austin Pendleton) and in the groundbreaking Netflix series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, is also a former Bat at the Flea Theater. She is a viral-video sensation for the internet comedy series The Key of Awesome, home to the most hilarious Adele parody videos on the internet.
