Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox is set to produce a documentary about transgender youths.

The transgender actress has teamed up with Tv bosses at MTv and Logo to develop Trans Teen: The Documentary.

The project will centre on four transgender youths, ranging in age from 14 to 24, and their struggles with intolerance and bullying and their medical, psychological and social hurdles.

Cox has spoken in the past about the bullying she endured growing up in Alabama, revealing she has awful and painful memories of her childhood.
