Television police drama starring two female cops as partners. Their contrasting personalities (one is tough and the other sensitive) strengthen them as a team, allowing each a different perspective on both personal and professional situations. Mary Beth Lacey was the married one, trying to be a wife and a mother to three children, as well as a New York City police officer. Chris Cagney was single, ambitious, and a recovering alcoholic.

Despite their different life-styles, Mary Beth and Chris were not only partners, but best friends as well.
