NBC Gives Full Season to “Mysteries of Laura”

After allowing CW and CBS to take in some of the glory of full season orders, NBC is doing the same.  Unlike CW and CBS, however, NBC is handing out a full season to only one series: The Mysteries of Laura.

NBC has ordered an additional nine episodes, bringing its first season total to 22 episodes.
