LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Per the network's notification:
NBC's "The Mysteries of Laura" will now have a special sneak preview at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17 following the season finale of "America's Got Talent."
It will make its time period premiere at 8 p.m. the following week on Wednesday, Sept. 24.
"The Mysteries of Laura" stars Debra Messing ("Will & Grace") as Laura Diamond, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her "Columbo" day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband - also a cop - who just can't seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she would be the first to admit she has her "hot mess" moments in this authentic look at what it really means to be a "working mom" today. Somehow, she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner, and things becomes even more complicated when her husband (Josh Lucas) ironically becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.
The cast also includes Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso and Janina Gavankar.
Writer Jeff Rake ("Boston Legal") and director McG ("Supernatural") serve as executive producer with Greg Berlanti ("Brothers & Sisters"), Aaron Kaplan ("The Neighbors"), Todd Lituchy and Sarah Schechter. "The Mysteries of Laura" is a production of Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and Kapital Entertainment.
