Police Woman Cast


Series Description
    


The Police Woman TV show was a 60 minute crime action series on NBC about an undercover lady cop who worked on the most despicable cases including murders and rapes. In order to gain the trust of the criminals she was investigating, she assumed numerous false identities including that as a teacher, nurse, waitress, etc. Anything that would put her close to the evidence she'd need to lock the scum away! She wasn't afraid to do whatever was necessary including appearing as a floozy dance hall girl and even as a prostitute! She was great at her deception and always "got her man" in the long run.

Police Woman Trivia

The Police Woman TV show was "spunoff" of an episode on the series, "Police Story". Angie Dickinson appeared on that episode as "Sergeant Lisa Beaumont" who was a character pretty much identical to "Sergeant "Pepper" Anderson" on Police Woman.

Industry experts generally agree that Police Woman was the first successful primetime dramatic series to have a woman in the main role. It was also the first successful show to star a female police officer!

Police Woman was, in fact, so popular during its very first season that it became #1 in the ratings while airing reruns during the following summer! It's huge appeal to viewership made it possible for future series to feature women as tough crime-fighters. A couple of the most notable were "Charlie's Angels" and perhaps the toughest lady cops since Pepper Anderson, "Cagney and Lacey".

It is commonly believed that the Police Woman TV show was President Gerald Ford's favorite show. In February of 1976 he actually changed the time for a news conference so that evening's episode of Police Woman would not be delayed!

Police Woman garnered a whopping four Emmy nominations and four Golden Globe Awards along with several other miscellaneous awards. Angie Dickinson turned one of the Golden Globe nominations into a win in 1975 in the "Best TV Actress - Drama" category by beating out her fellow nominees: "Lee Meriwether" for "Barnaby Jones", "Teresa Graves" for "Get Christie Love!", "Jean Marsh" for "Upstairs, Downstairs", and "Michael Learned" for "The Waltons"!

The number of women on police forces nationwide increased dramatically in the years following Police Woman's run on TV. Studies done twenty years and more later included questions asking female cops why they joined the force. A surprisingly large number of them cited "Police Story" and "Cagney and Lacey" as the reason!
