Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd Cast in Cagney & Lacey Reboot

Sarah Drew Michelle Hurd

Less than a week after it was announced that Sarah Drew would be leaving Grey's Anatomy at season's end, the actress has landed one of the two lead roles in CBS' Cagney & Lacey reboot.

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". MGM Television and CBS TV Studios will co-produce the show.

Drew will play Cagney in the series about two female detectives - the younger, easy-going Cagney and the empathetic mentor Lacey - in Los Angeles. Carpenter executive produces with Rodriguez.

The original Cagney & Lacey ran from 1982 to 1988 on CBS and is the latest series to get another shot at primetime.

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.

Drew, who recently departed the long-running ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy", is represented by Innovative Artists, LINK Entertainment and attorney Alex Kohner. CBS is particularly reboot happy, with pilots for Magnum P.I. and Murphy Brown also in contention for next season. Evil Dead, is with APA and TMT Entertainment Group.
