Orange Is the New Black (sometimes abbreviated to OITNB) is an American comedy-drama web television series created by Jenji Kohan for Netflix. The series is based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison (2010), about her experiences at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison. Produced by Tilted Productions in association with Lionsgate Television, Orange Is the New Black premiered on Netflix on July 11, 2013. In February 2016, the series was renewed for a fifth, sixth, and seventh season.
Piper Chapman is living the normal life of a woman in her thirties including the job, the friends and the relationship. Then one of her past indiscretions decides to catch up with her in a very big way. She is indicted for running drug money; an incident that happened ten years before when she was dating a drug dealer. She is then sentenced to 15 months in prison, a place she never thought she would end up and a place is she completely unprepared for at all.
