Per our sister site Deadline….

* Alonso will star opposite Debra Messing in NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura, Based on the Spanish series Los Misterios De Laura, the drama project follows the life and relationships of a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals — but not her mischievous twin sons. Alonso, whose credits also include Deception and Southland, will play Messing’s partner in crimesolving.

* Lombardozzi and Martino have both boarded The Winklers, ABC’s sitcom based on the life of TV vet Henry Winkler, who also stars. Lombardozzi will play Jack, an emotionally reserved construction worker who learns about love, life and hugs while living with oversharing his in-laws, Henry and Tita. Martino will play Jack’s somewhat controlling wife.

Lombardozzi’s other previous TV credits include Boardwalk Empire and Entourage, while Martino has appeared on New Girl, Mindy Project and How I Met Your Mother.

    How can you not list The Wire in Lombardozzi’s previous TV credits, but include Entourage (where he was in a whopping 3 episodes)?
