Despite having recently introduced the likes of Hemlock Grove and House of Cards, Netflix isn’t staying put and is now boosting its original content with yet another production: Orange is the New Black. The new comedic drama series, created by Weeds‘ own Jenji Kohan, is set to start streaming to worldwide Netflix subscribers beginning July 11th. Similar to Netflix’s House of Cards, Orange is the New Black consists of thirteen episodes running at around 60 minutes — however, the main story here won’t be based on drama coming out of D.C., but rather a “world populated with unforgettable characters and no-holds-barred humor set against the backdrop of a women’s prison.” Be sure to peruse over the PR after the break, where you’ll find more deets about the plot as well as the full cast.
