She's out of the Big House!

Orange Is the New Black's breakout cast member Laverne Cox has signed on to guest star in Bravo's first original scripted series, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, we're thrilled to reveal.

Cox will be playing the character Adele Northrop, a Pulitzer Prize-winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.

Fans are already familiar with Cox thanks to her groundbreaking role on the Netflix drama Orange Is the New Black. She's also made headlines as a speaker and advocate for the LGBT community and appeared recently on the cover of TIME Magazine for a story on the transgender movement in America.

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, inspired by the Girlfriends’ Guide book series by Vicki Iovine, follows Abby (played by Lisa Edelstein) who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. The series, premiering later this year, also stars Paul Adelstein, Janeane Garofalo, Beau Garrett, and Necar Zadegan.
