Spain’s popular drama series Los misterios de Laura has its American star…
Producers of the NBC hour-long pilot project, an adaptation of the Spanish-Language version, have cast former Smash star Debra Messing in the lead role.
The casting of Messing in the pilot, entitled The Mysteries of Laura, has helped lift the project’s cast-contingency.
Written by Jeff Rake and directed by McG, the pilot is based on the popular Spanish series Los misterios de Laura.
It follows the life and relationships of Laura Diamond (Messing), a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals — but not her hell-raising twin children.
Production on the pilot and the series will be moved to New York, where Messing is based.
The Mysteries of Laura extends Messing’s long history at NBC where she became a household name with her Emmy-winning starring role on the hit comedy Will & Grace.
