The Mysteries of Laura is an adaptation from a Spanish television series titled Los Misterios de Laura. The series is considered a procedural comedy-drama and stars Debra Messing in the title role.
Laura Diamond is a homicide detective with the New York Police Department who is also a single mother to twin boys. Laura is also in the middle of trying to divorce her husband, Jake Broderick, but things get sticky when he becomes her new boss.
