The show stars Deborah Messing and is about the misadventures of Laura Diamond, the esteemed homicide detective balances her work life with her family life in the most effective way she can, as both are very messy in very different ways.

At home, Laura is dealing with two troublesome twin sons and a husband (Josh Lucas) she is trying to divorce. At work, she at least has her trusted partner Billy (Laz Alonso), but also has to deal with envy from her peer Meredith (Janina Gavankar) and the usual hassle of tracking down perpetrators.

But when her husband Jake gets drawn into her work life by the end of the Season 1 premiere episodes, those separate worlds come crashing together. Having both Laura and Jake in the same place opens the door for some inter-office romantic tensions that will cause some trouble for the show’s main couple.

Gavankar admitted with a laugh.

Meredith is a very classy lady and would never do anything to be disrespectful in the workplace, but I think she thinks Jake is real cute,” With that in mind, she cautions, “A lot of things can happen [on the show] and we don’t know what those are yet.”

Gavankar adds of Meredith,We’re going to see why Meredith is like that. … I just know that Meredith has hero worship and hatred at the same time. [Laura's] just so good, but d***it, Meredith just wants her shine. It sucks to be in the shadow of somebody.”
