Orange is the New Black - A Netflix Original Series, Coming Soon

Given all the hype from their previous ventures into original programming (House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, Arrested Development Season 4), you would have thought that Netflix would have a whole page dedicated to their new upcoming attractions however this apparently is not the case. It was by pure chance I stumbled across the latest original series, Orange is the New Black, which already has its own page on the site.

The series is the latest from Weeds Creator Jenji Kohen and focuses on a suburban housewife, Piper Chapman, who suddenly finds herself behind bars and has to readjust her life. While you could argue that the series is a spin-off from Weeds (after all, this could be Nancy, seeing as how Piper is arrested for drug smuggling) the series still looks to be a whole lot of fun. As is typical with Kohen, there are a vast array of wild and kooky characters on display who are likely to provide a lot of the (unconventional?) humour to the series.

Check out the trailer here (NSFW due to language and nudity).

All 13 episodes will be available to everyone on July 11th.
