Was delighted to hear that my sis Laverne Cox will be gracing our network TV screen this fall and making more history in the process.
Our fave Emmy nominated actress has been cast in an upcoming CBS legal drama that will air this fall called Doubt
In it she will play an Ivy League educated openly transgender attorney who is described as competitive as she is compassionate.
And because she's trans and has experienced discrimination and injustice, she fights even harder for her clients.
Interestingly enough, this role was always envisioned at the outset by the show creators as a trans feminine character, and loving the fact she'll be playing that trans attorney.
And yep, know a couple of kick butt trans attorneys if you need to do some research in preparation to play this as of yet unnamed character.
Congratulations for getting this groundbreaking role in a dramatic series, and break a leg.
