Originally intended as a sitcom, Cassie & Co. became a 1982 drama, set in Los Angeles, starring Angie Dickinson as CASSIE HOLLAND, a hard-nosedcop who trades in her badge for a private ticket, taking over Lyman "Shack" Shackelford's detective agency.
With the help of her ex-con secretary Meryl and her gym instructor Benny, she sets up shop, working all manner of cases. She's also more than willing to trade in on her looks, her cop buddies and even her ex, Mike Holland, who works in the district attorney's office, to get the job done.
Essentially an older version of Dickinson's PepperAnderson character from in Police Woman, the show never really caught on. Even with an opening credit sequence that made a big deal of Dickinson's gams. The show made its debut as a mid-season replacement, but was soon being re-scheduled and postponed. It's run of 13 episodes finally sputtered out in late August.
