My Money Was on Fuchsia: 'Orange is the New Black' Season 2 Teaser
Celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the D-Day invasion the way that Normandy veterans would want you to: by marathoning the entire second season of a show set in women’s prison. Be proud, be American. When the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor, did Abraham Lincoln watch reruns of The Closer? No! And that is what the new season of Orange is the New Black means to all true Americans. Honor. Dignity. Drama. Lesbians lesbianing.
All 13 episodes of the second season of Orange is the New Black go live on Friday, June 6th. Here’s the teaser trailer, which despite being only 15 seconds long, does a decent job of shining a light on a bunch of different characters. Nothing in the way of plot, just significant looks and the like, but then half the time these 15 second teasers only have a quarter second of footage and then some dramatically positioned words, so I’m not complaining too vociferously.
Laura Prepon is nowhere to be seen, but show runner Jenji Kohan had this to say: “Yes, yes, she is coming back. Not the whole season, but…you’ll see her for most of it.” So you know, we got that going for us.
Kohan, whose name seriously sounds like that of a barbarian chieftain in some dark corner of George R.R. Martin’s psyche, also said that the show will not focus quite as much on Piper: “It’s becoming much more of an ensemble. As much as I love Piper and Taylor and her journey, I think people are interested in everybody’s journey.”
One word: Taystee.

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)

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