Crime dramedy is based on Spanish show.
Two years after the last episode of The Firm, Josh Lucas has signed on with NBC once again, this time for a crime dramedy adapted from the Spanish format Los Misterios de Laura.
Former Will & Grace star Debra Messing will play the titular Laura, a tough and cunning homicide detective and the mother of rambunctious twin boys. The character’s life becomes even more complicated when her future ex-husband is appointed captain in the same precinct where she works.
Lucas will play Laura’s ex-husband-to-be, Jake, who refuses to sign the divorce papers. A quick-witted cop with keen instincts, Jake is also an expert schmoozer with a knack for talking his way out of any situation. Naturally, the character finds a way to maintain his “good dad” image while letting Laura raise their twin boys.
Jeff Rake (Bones) will write the adaptation, which will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, aka McG (Terminator Salvation).
The project will once again reunite Debra Messing with NBC, the network that brought her back to TV in 2012 through the musical series Smash, which was cancelled one year later. – AFP Relaxnews
