'Grey's Anatomy's' Sarah Drew to Star in CBS' 'Cagney and Lacey'

'Grey's Anatomy's' Sarah Drew to Star in CBS' 'Cagney and Lacey'

Additionally, Deadline reports that the actress could soon become the highest paid female TV star, as it's rumored her new salary would reach more the $550,000 per episode. She will be somewhat of a mentor to Drew's Cagney, described as a "nimble and easygoing partner and protege", Variety reported.

Unlike the equal partnership of the earlier series, Cagney will be the protégée of the more experienced Lacey in the pilot, which CBS announced in January. Also, the character of Lacey has been conceived and written as African American, another big distinction from the original series. Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly, respectively, starred as the title characters in CBS' 1981-88 original series and three 1990s TV-movies, which were set in NY. The new deal will see the series hit at least season 16, and also secures Pompeo as an Executive Producer on Grey's as well as on Station 19. The duo will exit at the end of the show's current 14th season. Bridget Carpenter wrote the new pilot, with Rosemary Rodriguez to serve as director.

Jay Hernandez has already been cast as the titular private investigator of Magnum P.I.
