Upfronts 2014: First Look At NBC’s ‘The Mysteries Of Laura’

TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at NBC’s new drama series The Mysteries of Laura.

The Mysteries of Laura follows Laura Diamond (Debra Messing), a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her “Columbo” day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband (Josh Lucas) — also a cop — who just can’t seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she’d be the first to admit she has her “hot mess” moments in this hilariously authentic look at what it really means to be a “working mom” today. Somehow, she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner, and things becomes even more complicated when her husband, ironically, becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.

Based on the Spanish series Los Misterios De Laura, The Mysteries of Laura hails from Jeff Rake, Berlanti Productions, Kapital Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television. The series also stars, in addition to Debra Messing and Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar. The executive producers are Jeff Rake, McG, Greg Berlanti, Aaron Kaplan, Todd Lituchy and Sarah Schechter.
