Orange Is the New Black actress/icon Laverne Cox has landed a guest spot on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Bravo’s first original scripted series. She’ll play Adele Northrop, a war journalist and LGBT activist who appears to present an award at a marriage equality gala.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The upcoming series, based on the books by Vicki Iovine, centers on Abby (House alum Lisa Edelstein), a self-help author hiding her failed marriage with her husband, Jake (Private Practice’s Paul Adelstein).
Cox is best known for her current role in Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black as an incarcerated African-American, transgender woman. Her past television credits include TRANSForm Me, Law and Order, Law and Order: SVU, Bored to Death and I Wanna Work for Diddy. She recently was featured on the cover on Time magazine.
Super excited for this show. Not only does it star Lisa Edelstein and Janeane Garafalo (!), it’s being written by Marti Noxin (of Buffy fame), which makes it a must-see on my fall schedule.
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will premiere on Bravo later this year.
