Laverne Cox Stars In 'Orange Is The New Black,' New Netflix Series

The trailer for "Orange Is The New Black," Netflix's new original series created by Jenfi Kohan of "Weeds" fame, is here.

Actress, producer and transgender advocate Laverne Cox, who stars as a transgender character, told HuffPost Gay Voices in February that she expects incredible things from the series.

"The scripts are amazing and the directors are amazing," Cox gushed.

In the comedic drama about a federal women's prison, Cox is featured alongside Taylor Schilling, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Michelle Hurst, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, and Taryn Manning.

The show premieres on July 11 at 12:01 PDT.
