After playing supporting roles in five series during the 1970's (including "Marcus Welby, M.D." and "House Calls"), Gless achieved stardom in the CBS detective series "Cagney and Lacey" (1982-1988). She had also appeared in numerous made-for-TV movies and miniseries including James Michener's Centennial early in her career. Gless began a new series in 1990, "The Trials of Rosie O'Neil," in which she plays the title role, a public defender. The role of Cagney brought her two Best Actress Emmys in 1986 and 1987.
