Cagney & Lacey is an American police procedural television series created by Barbara Avedon and Barbara Corday which was originally aired on the CBS from March 25, 1982, to May 16, 1988, for a total of seven seasons and 125 episodes with 4 television movies. The series starred Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly as New York City police detectives who led very different lives: Christine Cagney (Gless) was a career-minded single woman, while Mary Beth Lacey (Daly) was a married working mother. The series was set in a fictionalized version of Manhattan's 14th Precinct (known as "Midtown South"). For six consecutive years, one of the two lead actresses won the Emmy for Best Lead Actress in a Drama (four wins for Daly, two for Gless), a winning streak matched only once since in any major category by a show.
