The Mysteries of Laura is a procedural dramedy featuring a quirky female homicide detective (Messing) who juggles high-stakes crime with her ex-husband (Lucas) and a devilish set of twin boys.
Lucas' character Jake is described as a clever cop with keen instincts who winds up being captain in the same precinct as his soon-to-be ex-wife. (Jake won't sign the divorce papers.) A serial cheater who could schmooze his way out of the electric chair, Jake's charm and coveted "good dad" role means he deftly leaves the parenting of his young twin children entirely to Laura.
The Tomorrow People's Jeff Rake will write and executive-produce the drama, based on a Spanish series, with Arrow's Greg Berlanti and Aaron Kaplan. As previously announced, Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar will also star.
