Orange is the New Black, A new Lesbian Prison Drama

Netflix game on.

Netflix game on. Following in the footsteps of House of Cards, in its cable quality orginal programming, Netflix is rolling out a new watch-it-all-at-once drama, Orange is the New Black. From the makers of Weeds, Orange is the New Black is the show Ilene Chaiken wanted to spin off of The L Word.

Believe it or not, Orange is based on the true story of Piper Kerman who spent a year in a women’s correctional facility on drug charges and lived to write about it. So far rave reviews, lesbianism, drama, penal system… what’s not to love. I think I just saw Lea Delaria in the trailer, time to re-up my Netflix sub.
