The Mysteries of Laura Season 1
Emmy® winner Debra Messing (Will & Grace, Smash, The Starter Wife) stars in the new dramedy THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA as Laura Diamond, an extraordinarily gifted New York City police detective and extremely overrun mother of 6-year-old twin boys -- aka "the monsters". Laura often throws off suspects by her disheveled demeanor, and her attention to detail and stellar hunches always pays off with an arrest (even if she does have oatmeal stuck in her hair). In contrast, she is usually one or two steps behind in her home life, maneuvering pre-school politics a little less deftly than those of the precinct, without much help from her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jake, a rogue charmer and police lieutenant she may still be in love with who is always upbeat but often unavailable due to his "police work" -- something that is about to really complicate things.

Luckily, Laura has help. Her awesome partner Billy is a good cop with a good heart who is not afraid to run down a suspect or use his good looks to get information. Max is her super smart and resourceful investigative aide, who may not be ready to go out into the field, but can pitch in as a makeshift babysitter when Laura's twins are kicked out of preschool. Meanwhile, Laura's rival, Meredith, is a detective who does things strictly by the book and doesn't understand how Laura always gets the perp and accompanying accolades.

THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA showcases what it means for Laura to be a working mom while always getting her man -- er, suspect. Greg Berlanti (Arrow), writer Jeff Rake (Boston Legal), director McG (Supernatural), Aaron Kaplan (Chasing Life) and Todd Lituchy serve as executive producers of the pilot, based on the original series created by Carlos Vila and Javier Holgado for Boomerang TV and TVE1 Spain
