According to Hello Giggles actress, Katherine Heigl is the star of the new legal drama. While Cox will play Cameron Wirth, Heigl will play Sadie Ellis, a defense attorney who is on trial for murder. It's not clear whether he actually committed the murder, an aspect of the show that will lead to much debate.
|Laverne Cox Transgender|
We applaud CBS for giving Cox the opportunity and we'll definitely be watching the show. We can already heard the critics, who are certain to hate on the series. While there are African American actors who face racism in Hollywood, Laverne is not only black, she's also transgender.
Think twice before you create your memes and share joke about the actress via social media. When she was 11-years-old she attempted suicide after realizing that she had developed feelings for some of her male classmates. She has come a very long way and we can't wait to see her new show!
