Another win for diversity!

Laverne Cox is on a roll and continues to add roles to her acting résumé.

Last Thursday, we reported that Laverne would guest star on FOX’s The Mindy Project, and this week, Laverne’s fortune has grown.

CBS has announced that Laverne will co-star in its brand new legal drama pilot Doubt.

Laverne will portray Cameron Wirth.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron is “a transgender Ivy League-educated attorney who is as competitive as she is compassionate. She’s fierce, funny and the fact that she’s experienced injustice first hand makes her fight all the harder for her clients.”

In a move to further diversify television and join the ranks of shows like Orange Is the New Black, black-ish and Transparent, Laverne’s role was specifically created for a transgender actress.

Excuse us while we shout, but WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR LAVERNE!

Congratulations, girl!
