Every week, The GLAAD Wrap brings you LGBTQ-related entertainment news highlights, fresh stuff to watch out for, and fun diversions to help you kick off the weekend .

1) Doubt, a new legal drama starring Laverne Cox as trans lawyer Cameron Wirth, will premiere on CBS February 15, taking over Code Black’s Wednesday night slot. CBS All Access, the network's subscription service, has announced that out actor Anthony Rapp will play Lt. Stamets, a gay Starfleet Science Officer, in the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery. Stamets is described as an "astromycologist" and a fungus expert.

2) CMT released a dramatic new trailer for the upcoming fifth season of Nashville, after the series was picked up by the channel following cancellation by ABC. Out country singer Will seems to play a big part in the trailer where he can be seen playing several concerts - including confronting an instance of anti-gay violence - and sharing scenes with a new love interest. This season will also add a recurring transgender character played by trans actress and advocate Jen Richards.

The film, about a young gay black man growing up in Miami, has also received 10 nominations at the Critic’s Choice Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and a Best Young Actor/Actress nod for Alex R. Hibbert, who plays “little” Chiron.
