Laz Alonso is finally coming back to a small screen near you!

After his last show Deception got cancelled, Alonso’s popped up for a few guest appearances on shows like Single Ladies and Person of Interest, but fans were wondering when and where they’d see him again on a regular basis. Well, the wait is over!

“I just found out today that a series that I shot for NBC called The Mysteries of Laura just got picked up,” the hunky actor told HipHollywood Thursday night. Described as a “very tongue-in-cheek comedic homicide detective show”, the cast also includes Debra Messing and Josh Lucas.

But that’s not Laz’s only gig, the Avatar actor is now the host of Verses and Flow season four!

Verses and Flow can be seen on TV One starting in August, while The Mysteries of Laura is set to premiere this Fall on NBC.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
