Sarah Drew, Michelle Hurd to star in Cagney & Lacey reboot”

Drew will headline the pilot of CBS' reboot of Cagney and Lacey, according to The Hollywood Reporter, meaning the actress - who has been on Grey's Anatomy for the past nine seasons as April - was unemployed for a whole three days.

Written by Friday Night Lights alum Bridget Carpenter, the reboot finds the two female detectives and friends trying to keep the streets of Los Angeles safe. Athletic, polished, former high-school track and field champion. Michelle Hurd, who recently recurred on Blindspot as the villain Shepherd, will play Lacey.

Cagney & Lacey was a 1980s cop drama, starring Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, which won eight Emmy Awards. Empathetic and straightforward, she's the more experienced partner. CBS Television Studios will produce alongside MGM Television.

It was recently announced that Drew was leaving Grey's Anatomy after nine seasons.

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 is repped by Innovative Artists, LINK Entertainment and attorney Alex Kohner; Hurd, whose credits also include Fox's Lethal Weapon, CBS' Hawaii Five-0 and Starz's Ash vs.

Hurd will play Lacey, an LAPD Detective. Evil Dead, is with APA and TMT Entertainment Group.
