Olatz López Garmendia
This short lived TV action series starred Jamie Rose as a hard hitting Chicago female homicide detective whose methods and police tactics are similar to Harry Callahan aka Dirty Harry. The main character was referred by the TV critics back then in the 80's as "Dirty Harriet", since she also packed a 357 Magnum revolver and took no prisoners. The show was canceled after 1 season not only because of its ratings, but because it was considerable too violent for it's time (the mid 1980's), but Rose's performance as well as Danny Aiello as her boss was great! It was shot on location in Chicago and there were some very good guest stars on the show like Tony Lo Bianco and Katy Jurado. The only other TV show that dealt with female detectives during this period of the mid 1980's was Cagney & Lacey, which was superior to Lady Blue in scripts and direction but had much less action. The only other TV series I could compare Lady Blue in contact and subject matter with would be the 1970's TV series Police Woman starring Angie Dickinson as Sgt. Pepper Anderson.
