CBS Casts Its New Cagney & Lacey

Cagney & Lacey was a trendsetter in many ways as it showed two entirely different characters - Cagney a single, career-minded woman, while Lacey a married mother - fight bad guys as New York City police detectives.

In its reboot, Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew has been roped in to star as Chris Cagney in CBS' upcoming drama pilot. She'll play LAPD Detective Cagney, Lacey's "nimble and easygoing partner and protégée". Hurd's Lacey is athletic, polished, a former high school track and field champion.

Bridget Carpenter penned the script for CBS' Cagney and Lacey and executive produces alongside Rosemary Rodriguez, who will direct the pilot from CBS Television Studios and MGM Television.

The original Cagney & Lacey took place in NY and had a seven-season run from 1982 to 1988.


The series captured multiple Emmys ― including for best drama and for Daly and Gless in the best actress category. I hear the Grey's team was very gracious in accommodating Drew's filming schedule so she could do Cagney & Lacey, something she wouldn't have been able to pursue because the ABC medical drama is still in production.

The actresses have been cast in CBS" pilot of the "80s police procedural reboot, ET confirms.

Drew, who plays April Kepner on Grey's Anatomy, confirmed her impending departure from the show Thursday.

Last week, Grey's Anatomy received the shocking news that both Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew are leaving the show at the end of season 14. Evil Dead, is with APA and TMT Entertainment Group.
