It’s Laura Diamond’s most awkward mystery yet: Can she be friends with her ex-husband’s new squeeze?
TVLine has an exclusive sneak peek of Wednesday’s Mysteries of Laura (NBC, 8/7c) which pairs Debra Messing and Jenna Fischer‘s characters on a particularly sensitive case. But the real surprise — besides Jake’s new lady friend serving as legal counsel — is that she might not be as much of a stickler for the rules as Laura initially assumed. (I’m sorry, did you think NBC would suddenly decide to make Pam unlikable?)
As ADA Jen Lambert, “Finally, I get to wear a power suit! I get to interrogate witnesses, I get to look into Josh Lucas’ so-blue eyes…” Fischer recently raved to TVLine of her new role. As for the ladies in Jake’s life, “It’s the sort of thing where Jen and Laura would be friends if not for this romance thats brewing,” Fischer said. “So… it’s complicated.”
