Two women-sores are responsible for working in the dark neighborhoods of the city of New York, while they are in parallel in their private lives, which are also agitated.

Cagney and Lacey is an American television series which was broadcast between 1982 and 1988. The series features two New York police inspectors, Mary Beth Lacey and Christine Cagney.

Mary Beth Lacey is a married woman and mother, who loves her work but who must also manage family responsibilities. Christine Cagney, on the other hand, is a hardened, ambitious and independent bachelor, who has problems to reconcile her personal and professional life.

The two women work together in the New York criminal brigade, where they are investigating the most sordid crimes in the city. They must face professional and personal challenges while trying to maintain a certain balance in their lives.

Over the episodes, the two women demonstrate their courage and their determination by resolving difficult cases and fighting sexist prejudices within the police. They build friendships with their colleagues, especially with their superior, Lieutenant Samuels, and with their partner, Inspector Harvey Lefkowitz.

The series was acclaimed by criticism for its realism and innovative approach to gender and discrimination subjects. She won several prizes and was nominated for numerous awards, including the Emmy Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.

Originally, it was actress Loretta Swit (fire lips, in the series "Mash"), which postulated for the role of Christine Cagney. There was then a question of Mag Foster in the role, before, for the series as we know it, Sharon Gless does not fall asleep.

The series was one of the first to make a social dimension and family problems with the life of police officers in the "big apple". Many awards (actresses, scenarios, realization, editing, sound, ...) will enamel the career of this series, which was extended a few years later from a series of 4 TV movies.
