Cagney & Lacey was a 1980s cop drama, starring Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, which won eight Emmy Awards.

Drew, who has spent the past nine seasons on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, will play Cagney, an easygoing partner and protegee to Lacey. She is described as empathetic and straightforward, and is Cagney's more experienced partner.

Less than a week after news broke the Grey's Anatomy star will be exiting the show at the end of its current season, the actress has been cast as Cagney in CBS' Cagney & Lacey reboot. Michelle Hurd, who recently recurred on Blindspot as the villain Shepherd, will play Lacey. Hurd's Lacey is athletic, polished and a former high school track and field champion. Carpenter executive produces with Rodriguez. CBS Television Studios will produce alongside MGM Television. Given Cagney & Lacey's ability to fit into two things CBS desperately adores right now - police procedurals, female-forward dramas - I'd put money on it being on the fall schedule.

There was strong reaction from Grey's Anatomy fans last week when Deadline broke the news that longtime cast members Drew and Jessica Capshaw would not return next season in a decision the producers explained with the show's creative direction. She is repped by LINK Entertainment, Innovative Artists and attorney Alex Kohner.
