In contrast, she is usually one or two steps behind in her home life, maneuvering pre-school politics a little less deftly than those of the precinct, without much help from her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jake (Josh Lucas, Glory Road), a rogue charmer and police lieutenant she may still be in love with who is always upbeat but often unavailable due to his “police work” – something that is about to really complicate things. THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA showcases what it means for Laura to be a working mom while always getting her man – er, suspect. THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA is based on the original series created by Carlos Vila and Javier Holgado for Boomerang TV and TVE1 Spain, and is from executive producers Greg Berlanti (ARROW), Jeff Rake (BOSTON LEGAL), McG (SUPERNATURAL), and Aaron Kaplan (CHASING LIFE).
