‘Doubt’: Katherine Heigl Discusses TV Return, Laverne Cox ‘Really Grateful’ for History-Making Role

10 August 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hours after CBS president Glenn Geller’s contentious session at Television Critics Association, during which members of the press pushed him on the network’s lack of diverse leads, the cast of “Doubt” took the stage at the summer press tour.

Laverne Cox’s casting marks the first-ever transgender actor to play a transgender character in a series regular role on broadcast TV — a milestone that Geller applauded during his Q&A earlier in the day.

“I’m really, really grateful to have a job as an actor,” Cox said during the “Doubt” panel. “Four years ago, I was standing in February of 2012 in New York City with an eviction notice in my hand…so I’m just really happy to have a job.”

In the upcoming legal drama, Cox plays Cameron Wirth, a trans Ivy League-educated lawyer. During the TCA panel, creators Tony Phelan and Joan Rater revealed that the show’s case-of-the-week storylines will touch »

“The People v Oj Simpson” includes many moments that seem too outrageous too be true — like Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) saying “n—– please” to Chris Darden (Sterling K. Brown) after an argument over admitting evidence that Mark Fuhrman (Steven Pasquale) used the N-word. But that really happened — and so did lots of other shocking things, like Oj Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr.) yelling at Darden to “get off my bench.” But “The People v Oj Simpson” didn’t go over the top in the wild details it included.

Watch ‘Star Trek’ Revival’s First Teaser and More CBS Trailers

18 May 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has released the trailers for the new shows debuting during the network’s 2016-17 season, including the upcoming revival of “Star Trek.” The first look teaser for the sci-fi series had no footage, but promised “new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds.”

Though the logo simply says “Star Trek,” Variety has learned that the series will have a more specific title to be unveiled at a later date. Later installments in the “Star Trek” television franchise had titles that differentiated them from the original series — “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

CBS also unveiled promos for the remakes of “MacGyver” and “Training Day,” and new comedies starring Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc, among others.

Check out the videos for the new series below.
