Netflix is on a roll with shows like House of Cards, Hemlock Grove and, of course, Arrested Development, but their best show yet may be premiering this July – Jenji Kohan’s Orange Is The New Black.
The comedy drama tells the story of a woman, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), who is forced to serve time in a federal prison after a major drug bust. And, as you can see in the trailer, this show has one amazing supporting cast, with actors including Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Michelle Hurst, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.
Oh, and it’s based on true events.
Schilling was of course amazing in the little seen NBC show Mercy, and Kohan, who has found herself in the news quite a bit these past few days, won raves for her last show, Weeds, so these two teaming up seems pretty genius.
Check out the trailer above and get very excited. You may even shed a tear at the end of this one.
We blame Rilo Kiley.
