"Orange Is the New Black" is a Netflix original comedic drama series, starring Taylor Schilling, that is based on the popular memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman.

Set in a women's prison, the series follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and 15-month long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates.

The cast also includes Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.

"Orange Is the New Black" is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix. The series creator and executive producer is Jenji Kohan ("Weeds")
