Debra Messing is set to headline a new drama for NBC titled “The Mysteries of Laura” playing a homicide detective juggling a demanding work life and twin boys in her home life.
The Mysteries of Laura will see Messing playing a female homicide detective named Laura Diamond who can handle murderous criminals — but not her hell-raising twin children. The show written by Jeff Rake and directed by McG (Charlies Angels) is based on the popular Spanish series Los Misterios De Laura which explores the life and relationships of Laura Diamond.
Messing, who rose to fame in NBC’s comedy Will & Grace and more recently the NBC musical series Smash was last season, attached to a comedy project for CBS that never came to light.
Berlanti Prods. and Kapital Entertainment are producing “Mysteries of Laura” in association with Warner Bros. TV. The original Spanish series was created by Carlos Vila and Javier Holgado for Boomerang TV and TVE1 Spain.
Molecular Gastronomy. Thank goodness for auto correct. It was the theme of last nights instant restaurant (named Alchemy). It was all science mixed with food mixed with edible dirt.
I’m still lost with the edible dirt.
Both Josh and Danielle from VIC both quit their day jobs to try their hand at combining their two loves – food and science. It sounds kinda cool but apparently, it doesn’t translate well to taste. There are just some hobbies that should not be shared with the world.
Seems like Harry has moved on from Bianca and set his sights on Kelly. There was some weird flirting going on between the two that involved them licking the edible paintings. Just wait till he sees her unhinge her jaw and eat him whole. David was still in fine form. Watching him try and explain what alchemy was to wife Corinne was like watching Kelly trying to explain what confit means to Manu (painful).
The Best Dish of the Night: Chloe vocally expressing her hopes that Josh and Danielle fail in their instant kitchen resulting in tumbleweeds rolling by. One moment, everyone’s looking at the dirt and asking “Is it edible?”, the next, silence after Chloe said just how she feels.
The Food Overall: I’ll let Kelly take this one…
Ox Tail Gyoza with hazelnut oil and apple sphere (or fancy grapes) for entree, Sous Vide Salmon with cinnamon biscuit and vanilla mayo for mains and banana parfait with maple bacon for desert. Somewhere along the line, Josh and Danielle got their food groups mixed up. Maybe move the bacon to the main and the cinnamon biscuit with vanilla mayo to the desert….and scrap the entree seems like a better idea.
