Detective Laura Diamond (Debra Messing), the lead character in The Mysteries Of Laura is doing what many mothers do, a juggling act.
Her job is that of New York City Detective. Meanwhile she is trying to divorce her husband, Jake (Josh Lucas), but he has yet to sign the divorce papers. Laura and Jake have two very rowdy young sons who are adept at getting into trouble.
I watched the pilot last night. I didn’t know what to expect, but I enjoyed it. There is a lightness and a reality of being a working parent. The show also is not as heavy as it’s sister cop drama Law & Order, which is a nice change from many of the police room dramas that dominate the TV landscape.
So far so good. Onto episode 2.
