Sarah Drew goes from Grey's Anatomy to Cagney & Lacey, joining Blindspot alum Michelle Hurd
Drew has quickly landed a pilot a week after being dropped from Grey's Anatomy, joining the CBS reboot of the classic police procedural. According to Deadline, "Drew will play LAPD Detective Cagney, Lacey’s nimble and easygoing partner and protégée. Hurd’s Lacey is athletic, polished, a former high school track and field champion. Empathetic and straightforward, she’s the more experienced partner." Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless won six acting Emmys between them starring on the original Cagney & Lacey, which won two best drama series Emmys during its seven-season run. Hurd is no stranger to reboots of popular franchises. In fact, she's had recent guest appearances on both Lethal Weapon and Hawaii Five-0.

CBS orders a Seth Rogen comedy pilot that sounds like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, but with a guy
Source: The A.V. Club
The proposed comedy titled 25, from Rogen and writing partner Evan Goldberg, is about a twenty-something guy who moves to Austin to tell his best friend from camp that they are perfect for each other, only to learn that she just got engaged. Not only does the premise sound like a gender-flipped Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, but there is concern that a show about a guy relentlessly pursuing a girl who has moved on isn't a good idea in these #MeToo times.
