Synopsis

The landmark movie about two women police partners that spawned a series unique in television history-- critically-acclaimed but twice cancelled by the network and twice revived because of audience response. Tyne Daly, the married partner juggling a career and family, subsequently won an Emmy Award as Top Female Series Star as Mary Beth Lacey in 1983, after the show's second cancellation. Loretta Swit, who was elsewhere occupied on "M*A*S*H" as Margaret Houlihan, gave way to Meg Foster for the "Cagney & Lacey" series, and she in turn was replaced by Sharon Gless.
