The two lead parts have been cast for CBS’s reboot of its classic female-centric detective series “Cagney & Lacey.” Variety reports that Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd have boarded the pilot.
“Hurd will play Lacey, an LAPD detective,” Variety reports. “Athletic, polished, former high-school track and field champion. She is described as empathetic and straightforward, and is Cagney’s more experienced partner. Drew will play LAPD detective Cagney, described as Lacey’s nimble and easygoing partner and protégée.”
The report notes that Drew recently departed ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Bridget Carpenter will write and executive produce the “Cagney & Lacey” pilot, with CBS Television Studios producing along with MGM Television.
