ABC Pilot THE TRUSTEE Casts Laverne Cox


Comedy Pilot The Trustee has cast Laverne Cox as co-lead alongside Meaghan Rath (Being Human).

The Trustee is described as a fun, female buddy cop comedy about Eliza Radley (Rath), a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, Amanda Jones (Cox) a larger-than-life ex-con finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Though these two have completely opposing views on crime and punishment, a highly entertaining and successful partnership is born.

Laverne Cox is coming off the unsuccessful run of Doubt which hasn’t been renewed and has been pulled off the schedule. The Trustee will be produced by Elizabeth Banks’ Brownstone Productions.
