Watch out, bad boys—there's a new detective in town who can handle even the toughest criminals. But not her own children.
Such is the premise of NBC's new detective show "The Mysteries of Laura"—producers Greg Berlanti and Jeff Rake's version of the Spanish series "Los Misterios de Laura."
Fresh of her successful Broadway debut in "Outside Mullingar," the "Smash" star Debra Messing has tackled (and documented) this new project with gusto.
Scroll down to see her learning her lines, trying to shoot a swimsuit scene at 30-degree temperatures, and mingling with fellow castmembers Josh Lucas, Otto W. Gross, and others.
