Laverne Cox Cast in CBS Pilot ‘Doubt’ as Transgender Attorney

Laverne Cox  alumni of Orange is the New Black has made history again as the first openly transgender actor in a  broadcast TV  show. Cox will co-star in Doubt, from longtime Grey’s Anatomy executive producers Tony Phelan and Joan Rater. Its about a smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm who shockingly gets involved romantically with one of her clients who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime. Cox will play Cameron Wirth, a fierce and funny, competitive and compassionate transgender Ivy League-educated attorney. The fact that she’s experienced injustice first hand makes her fight all the harder for her clients.
