Melissa Joan Hart of Sabrina the Teenage Witch fame will soon pop up on a Wednesday night on NBC. The former Nickelodeon star will guest star on an upcoming episode of Debra Messing’s sitcom, The Mysteries of Laura.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Melissa Joan Hart will play the role of an online radio host named KC Moss. KC runs a Serial-esque program that gets in the way of Detective Laura Diamond’s (played by Debra Messing) investigation of a 15-year-old cold case. The character Hart will play is based on Sarah Koenig, the host of the wildly popular Serial podcast.
On Thursday, Hart shared a photo of herself with Debra Messing. In the photo, Melissa Joan Hart sports a shiner.
“Working with this fantastic woman! @therealdebramessing (And no she didn’t give me the shiner) #MysteriesOfLaura #bts,” Hart captions the shot.
Prior to sharing her photo with Debra Messing, Melissa Joan Hart shared this photo, along with a hint for her fans.
“Another hint about the show I’m guest starring on. Any ideas? #MysteriesOfLaura,” she captioned this one.
Melissa Joan Hart currently stars along with Joey Lawrence in Melissa & Joey. The finale for their show wrapped filming in February, however, so this gig on The Mysteries of Laura came about at the perfect time.
