First Look: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK on Netflix

Netflix released the trailer for their next original series, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, and created by Jenji Kohan (creator of WEEDS).  The show, which is being released on July 11 all in one fell swoop, follows Taylor Schilling’s Piper Chapman, whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. She finds herself in an unfamiliar world with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates (among them, Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning).  The series also stars Kate Mulgrew, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Matt McGorry, and Laverne Cox; Jason Biggs plays Piper’s fiancé Larry.
