Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd Cast in Cagney & Lacey Reboot

Fans are still mourning her impending exit from Grey's Anatomy, but Sarah Drew has another leading role lined up in CBS' Cagney & Lacey pilot.

Drew will play Detective Cagney, who is an easygoing partner and protégée to Detective Lacey (Hurd), who is described as follows: "Lacey is athletic, polished, a former high school track and field champion". In an age where shows like Roseanne and The X-Files are returning to fan acclaim, CBS is getting in on the game, riding the wave of television reboots with Magnum P.I and Cagney & Lacey.

Drew spent nine seasons as a series regular on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" before it was announced last week that she and fellow star Jessica Capshaw would leave at the end of this season. She is the partner and protégé of Hurd's Lacey, the more experienced half of the duo and an accomplished athlete.

What do you think of Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd as the leads in the upcoming Cagney & Lacey reboot? Carpenter executive produces with Rodriguez.

CBS' reboot of the 1980s police procedural will move the show from NY to Los Angeles, but major plot points are expected to remain the same. The new Cagney & Lacey will be set in Los Angeles, and not in New York City like the original series was.

The original show, which ran for seven seasons from 1982 to 1988, won two Emmys for best drama and six for lead actress in a drama series.

The news comes days after Drew and co-star Jessica Capshaw were let go from the veteran Shondaland medical drama Grey's Anatomy. The so-called "Golden Age" of television has made great strides in telling new stories. The network's line-up also consists of a pilot for Magnum P.I. and a straight-to-series order for Murphy Brown. Everything about Cagney & Lacey seems to promise a reboot that will be just what Hollywood's direction to work toward more female-centered stories.
