Laverne Cox is breaking out of the big house. At least temporarily.
The Orange Is the New Black star is set to guest-star on the new Bravo scripted series Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, the network announced Tuesday.
From Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Marti Noxon and based on the best-selling books of the same name, the hour-long series centers on Abby (House alum Lisa Edelstein), a self-help book author who tries to hide her separation from her husband as she begins to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s. She goes to her divorced friends, instead of her married ones, for advice which leads her to unexpected and life-altering experiences.
Cox will play Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer Prize-winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.
The series, which will premiere next year, also stars Janeane Garofalo (24) and Beau Garrett (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior). Carrie Fisher and Private Practice vet Paul Adelstein will guest-star in the pilot.
Cox's other TV credits include Law & Order: SVU and Bored to Death.
