Cagney & Lacey

1981 TV-14

This award-winning series changed the face of television with its realistic portrayal of two female NYPD detectives -- Mary Beth Lacey (Tyne Daley) and Christine Cagney (Sharon Gless) -- fighting crime and sexism in the workplace while maintaining their personal lives. Despite their differences, working mother Lacey and career-oriented Cagney form a tight partnership that helps them solve crimes ranging from petty theft to cold-blooded murder.
