Netflix's Next Series, "Orange Is the New Black," Looks Absolutely Fantastic

"Orange is the New Black" comes from Jenji Kohan ("Weeds") and looks like a better, longer-form version of Nancy Botwin's stint in prison. The series, based on Piper Kerman's memoir, stars Taylor Schilling as a woman who is imprisoned for her relationship with a drug smuggler. She has to come to terms with living in prison, and deal with a marriage (with a character played by Jason Biggs) that is falling apart outside. The series also stars Laura Prepon, Taryn Manning, and Natasha Lyonne, who looks like she's found the perfect role.

Check out the trailer. It looks incredibly promising. This trailer is actually the international trailer, which is the exact same as the American trailer except that 1) it's embeddable, and 2) it has Portuguese subtitles. If you want to see a trailer without subtitles, you'll have to sully yourself by visiting Deadline.

The series premieres in July on Netflix.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
