Orange Is The New Black Debuts on Netflix

The Netflix-produced, 13-episode adaptation Piper Kerman‘s Orange Is the New Black is now available to stream on Netflix. You can watch the trailer above, it contains some language that might not be appropriate for viewing at work.

Jenji Kohan, the creator of Showtime’s Weeds, adapted Kerman’s critically acclaimed prison memoir for Netflix. USA Today had this review of the new series:

a deft mix of comedy and drama in which the prison feels like a real place and the women are actual people, rather than a thinly veiled excuse to stage catfights, lesbian fantasies and sexual assault. As with Weeds, Kohan is telling the story of a white, middle-class woman who must suddenly cope with career criminals, but this time there’s a sad undertone to the story that makes the tale seem that much more relatable.
