Debra Messing has been cast as the titular character in the NBC pilot The Mysteries of Laura, according to TVLine. The show, from producers Greg Berlanti and Jeff Rake, is based on the popular Spanish series Los Misterios De Laura, about a woman who juggles being a homicide detective with raising twins. Oh joy, a cop show! We are so short on cop shows these days! Surely there is something in between the fiasco town that was Smash and a procedural, no?
