It's only been a week since it was announced that longterm Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew, who plays Dr April Kepner, had been given the chop but already the actress has landed a new role.

Drew is set to play Cagney in the upcoming CBS reboot of iconic '80s police drama Cagney & Lacey. She will star alongside Blindspot's Michelle Hurd who has been cast as Lacey.



Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless played the original duo with the series airing for seven seasons, earning itself plenty of Emmys along the way.

Hopefully the role will prove as fruitful for Drew.
