Friday November 4, 2016 - Here is a trailer for the new 2017 CBS TV show Doubt

I heard about this show last year. It's a new CBS series which premiers in early 2017. One of the regular cast members is played by Laverne Cox. Judging from this trailer, it looks pretty good. The diverse legal team will make for some interesting plots.

I hope this is the start (there will be starts and stops) of mainstreaming transgender characters. She is a transgender woman on the show with a law degree from a good school.. Will she have a love interest?  It will be interesting to see how they expand her character.

What :CBS Television Studios says about the show.

DOUBT stars Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, Billy Brennan, an altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. Sadie is hiding her growing feelings from everyone, including her close friend and colleague, Albert Cobb, who thinks he knows everything about her. Working on other cases at the practice is Cameron Wirth, a transgender Ivy League graduate who fights passionately for her clients since she’s experienced injustice first hand; Tiffany Simon, a second-year associate who is quickly learning the ropes from Wirth; and Nick, a former felon who earned his degree while serving time. They all consider it a privilege to work for Isaiah Roth, a revered legal lion and “lefty” legend, whose approval is their holy grail. Sadie’s decision to become involved with her client could put her career, as well as her happiness, at risk if Billy is found guilty, which means she needs to work all the harder to prove reasonable doubt, even if she has some herself.

  1. Alexandra Grey will also be a guest on Doubt. A few weeks ago she was a guest on Code Black and Chicago Med in the same week, both times playing a transgender woman.
