Trailer For New Netflix Series From Weeds Creator Jenji Kohan – Orange Is The New Black

The next of Netflix’s original commissions is Orange is the New Black, a prison comedy-drama from Jenji Kohan, the creator of Weeds. It’s derived from the memoirs of┬áPiper Kerman, sometime money launderer and drug trafficker. Here we meet “Piper Chapman,” played by Taylor Schilling.

This is actually funnier than a lot of full sitcom episodes I’ve seen lately, and uncomfortable and dramatic with it. Very promising.

Now, what everybody seems to have forgotten today is that Jodie Foster has directed a number of the show’s thirteen episodes. What sort of number? I have no idea.

Orange Is the New Black will arrive, all at once, on July 11th. I’m liking the cut of your jib, Netflix.
