Cagney & Lacey coming to the big screen

Are there any TV Shows left to do?

The latest Television show to get the film transfer is cop show “Cagney & Lacey”, according to an insider today.

Instead of being a spoof on the dramatic series though – like “Starsky and Hutch” – producers are out to pretty much transfer the serious tone of the Television serial into the film version. “In the vein of Thelma & Louise, with mature actresses in the leading roles”, says scooper ‘Brits’.

Created by Barbara Avedon, Barbara Corday and Barney Rosenzweig, “Cagney & Lacey” told the story of two female police detectives whose professional and personal lives kind of meet head-on on a daily basis.

No word whether Tyne Daly (Cagney) or Sharon Gless (Lacey) will appear in the film, though cameo appearances are more than likely.
