Orange is the New Black is an original TV show that airs on the popular streaming service, Netflix. The show is set in a minimum security women’s prison in New York. It is one of the most popular shows on the network, and has been produced since 2013. The show is very well known for addressing topics that are not often dealt with.
Orange is the New Black is based on a book by Piper Kerman. She is an American writer that was convicted of felony money-laundering. Her book chronicles the year she spent in prison and some of the characters she met there. Ironically, the show has lasted longer than her time in jail.
The show displays the interactions between inmates and guards and occasionally shows flashback portions as well. They represent the lives of both before entering the facility. If you are going to watch the show or have already, remember these characters are loosely based on real people. Some of these folks are quick to point out the differences.
A few of the topics addressed are rape, murder, racism, relationships, mental illness, drug abuse, deaths, and many more. Some of them have never been shown or discussed on TV. It does give the average watcher a bit of insight into different worlds that they may not be familiar with. The cast consists of more 20 inmates and includes guards and others as well.
Of course, the show is only available to watch on Netflix.
