The Office alum Jenna Fischer has booked a recurring a role on NBC’s comedy-drama series The Mysteries Of Laura.

Developed by Jeff Rake based on a Spanish format, Mysteries Of Laura stars Debra Messing as a brilliant and messy detective and single mother of twins. Fischer will play Jennifer Lambert, an attorney and single mom who makes waves for Laura when sparks fly between her character and Laura’s ex-husband Jake (Josh Lucas).

Fischer is best known for her starring role as Pam Beesly on the Emmy-winning series The Office, which earned her an Emmy nom for Best Supporting Actress and two SAG Awards for comedy ensemble. She went on to star in the off-Broadway play Reasons To Be Happy, written and directed by Neil LaBute. Fischer also will be seen in You, Me And The Apocalypse, a British dramedy starring Rob Lowe that NBC acquired last year.
