The Mysteries of Laura “The Mystery Of The Dodgy Draft” Episode 19

The Mysteries of Laura Episode 19 “The Mystery Of The Dodgy Draft” airs Wednesday, April 22nd at 8pm on NBC. In tonight’s episode, Laura (Debra Messing) deals with an epic personal crisis while searching for the killer of a teacher’s aide. The investigation leads the cops into the madness of NCAA basketball. Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso, Janina Gavankar, Max Jenkins and Meg Steedle also star. Kenny “The Jet” Smith guest stars as himself.

Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) stars 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 (Josh Lucas) — 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’d be the first to admit she has her “hot mess” moments in this hilariously 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, ironically, becomes her boss at the precinct. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act.

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.
