Emmy Award-nominated actress Sharon Lawrence returns to television in The CW's new drama "Hidden Palms." Sharon Lawrence plays Tess Wiatt, a Southern beauty with a taste for younger men.

Lawrence is best known for her role as Sylvia Costas on the hit television series "NYPD Blue," for which she earned several Emmy nominations. Lawrence was last seen with Tim Matheson in the television movie "Augusta, Gone," based on the New York Times best-selling book by Martha Tod Dudman. Lawrence's other small screen credits include "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal," "Law & Order," "Judging Amy," "Caroline in the City," "Ladies Man" and her own comedy series "Fired Up."

Up next for Lawrence on the big screen is the independent project "The Alibi," opening later this year. The story follows a man who runs an alibi service for cheating husbands and must confront the inevitable problems of his trade when he takes on a troublesome client. Lawrence's other feature film credits include "Little Black Book" and "The Only Thrill."

Lawrence began her career on stage, where she has gained critical acclaim for the many roles she has portrayed. Lawrence recently finished a run as Reno Sweeney, the nightclub singer that Ethel Merman made famous in "Anything Goes," for director Roger Rees and his Williamstown Theatre Festival. Lawrence received rave reviews for her star turn in the 1930s comedy of manners "No Time For Comedy" and at the Geffen Playhouse in the acclaimed revival of Lerner and Lowe's "Paint Your Wagon," her second appearance at the Geffen after her ferocious performance in the British play "Under the Blue Sky." Lawrence's other credits include the 9/11 drama "The Guys," the 1970s feminist hit "I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road" and "Company."

Lawrence is on the board of the Women In Film Foundation and is active in supporting the Earth Communications Office, The Creative Coalition and the Alzheimer's Association. Lawrence currently lives in Los Angeles.
