Brushing aside the question of whether the world needs a "Cagney & Lacey" reboot, you could argue this is an upgrade for both actresses.

Deadline.com reported that Drew, 37, who played Dr. April Kepner on the ABC medical drama from 2009 to the end of this current season, will co-star as LAPD Det. Blindspot alum Michelle Hurd has been cast as fellow co-lead Lacey in the reboot of the iconic 1980s police procedural.

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 new Cagney & Lacey isn't the only new female-friendly TV cop drama set in Los Angeles - Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba are teaming up for an untitled Bad Boys spin-off. She is the partner and protégé of Hurd's Lacey, the more experienced half of the duo and an accomplished athlete. Also, the character of Lacey has been conceived and written as African American, another big distinction from the original series.
