Fresh off the premieres of "House of Cards" and "Hemlock Grove" and looking forward to this month's return of "Arrested Development," Netflix has set a summer premiere for another new series, "Orange is the New Black."
Created by Jeni Kohan ("Weeds") based on the memoir by Piper Kerman, "Orange is the New Black" will roll out in its 13-episode entirety on Thursday, July 11.
Described as a "comic drama," "Orange" is set in a women's prison and stars Taylor Schilling along with Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.
"With ‘Orange is the New Black,’ Jenji Kohan has created a dramatic yet deeply funny world populated with unforgettable characters and no-holds-barred humor set against the backdrop of a women’s prison," blurbs Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. "Jenji is one of the most fearless voices in television and we are proud to share her uncompromising vision with Netflix members."
