Laverne Cox is flipping to the other side of the law for CBS and making TV history in the process. E! News has confirmed the Emmy nominated star of Orange Is the New Black has booked a lead role in Doubt, a new legal drama pilot in the works at the network. So what does this mean for her time behind bars on Netflix's Orange Is the New Black?
Cox will play Cameron Wirth, described as a transgender Ivy League-educated attorney who is "as competitive as she is compassionate." The character is "fierce" and "funny," and has experienced injustice first hand, making her "fight all the harder for her clients."
