Orange Is the New Black is an American comedy-drama television series created by Jenji Kohan and based on Piper Kerman's memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, about her experiences at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison.
The series follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary.
To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiance Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates.
In its final season, the ladies of Litchfield come to terms with the fact that prison has changed them forever.
Piper struggles with life on the outside, while life in Max, as corrupt and unjust as ever, goes on without her.
Taystee's friendship with Cindy still hangs in the balance as her life sentence looms and Gloria and her kitchen staff are confronted by the harsh realities of Polycon's newest profit stream.
Meanwhile, others chase drugs or dreams and grapple with the reality of their place in this world.
Orange Is the New Black is executive produced by Jenji Kohan. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television for Netflix.
