NBC Releases State of Affairs, Bad Judge and The Mysteries of Laura Trailers


The Peacock Network has three new series to promote this fall anchored by fan favorites. State of Affairs stars former Grey's Anatomy actress Katherine Heigl as CIA agent Charlie Tucker and ex-Desperate Housewives star Alfre Woodward as President Roberta Payton.

Agent Tucker is the head of the department that compiles and provides the daily threat assessment to the president. I know Heigl hate runs deep in some parts of the Internet, but I'll be giving it a try.

Former Private Practice lead Kate Walsh returns to broadcast television as an unorthodox justice seeker in the comedy Bad Judge. Based on the trailer, Walsh is having fun exploring the comedic side of television.

Debra Messing returns to NBC in Greg Berlanti's The Mysteries of Laura. The Will & Grace alum stars as Detective Laura Diamond, who must balance family and crimefighting.
