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.

    I read this book just about a month ago with no idea Netflix was producing a series. The book struck me as a bit Mary Sue-ish, but this looks just delightful. So glad to see Natasha Lyonne back. Plus Kate Mulgrew? Sign me up!
