Miss Laverne, you better work your Black Girl Magic!
CBS has ordered a legal drama from Tony Phelan and Joan Rater and it's making history.
"Doubt," which follows a defense attorney who might be falling for her client who may have committed a horrible crime, will co-star Laverne Cox, who was in the original pilot and the second.
According to Deadline, this means that "Doubt" will be the first broadcast series to feature a transgender series regular character played by a transgender actor.
The series is expected to air this fall.
