The Mysteries of Laura: New Debra Messing TV Show

mysteries of laura on NBCDebra Messing (Will & Grace, Smash) is returning to NBC next season. The actress is set to star in a new series, The Mysteries of Laura, in which she plays an NYPD homicide detective who can handle murderers better than her twin boys and ex-husband. The rest of the cast includes Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar.

Here’s some more info from the peacock network:


Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) stars as Laura Diamond, 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 – 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.

The cast also includes Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar.

Writer Jeff Rake (“Boston Legal”) and director McG (“Supernatural”) serve as executive producer with Greg Berlanti (“Brothers & Sisters”), Aaron Kaplan (“The Neighbors”) and Todd Lituchy. “The Mysteries of Laura” is a production of Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and Kapital Entertainment.

No word on how many episodes have been ordered or when the series will start airing. We should know more in the coming week.

What do you think? Does this show sound like a hit or a flop? Will you check it out?

I love Debra Messing so I’ll watch whatever she is in . I loved smash too. I’d love to see a will and grace return. Or her as the lead role in an Lucille Ball bio.
