It seems Adrienne C. Moore’s Orange is the New Black character Cindy Hayes (a.k.a. “Black Cindy”) isn’t about to let Netflix’s crackling log get all the holiday glory this season, as the fictional inmate takes center stage in a new video, which has her beat-boxing “Jingle Bells” in celebration of the holiday season.
The American Film Institute’s official selections for the 2013 AFI Awards have been announced, and the television selection proves that 2013 was a truly stellar year for the small screen. The list, which includes 10 of the year’s most outstanding television series as well as 10 equally-as-impressive movies, was selected by a panel of highly impressive judges.
Fans of Christmas music and 'Orange is the New Black' alike will join forces in joy thanks to a new, holiday music-themed video starring Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba — also known as Taystee and Crazy Eyes, respectively. Made in support of the charity Artists Striving to End Poverty, the "Jolly Christmas Medley," the holiday-themed tune is practically scientifically guaranteed to make you smile and forget all about those Monday blues.
About a month after Netflix released the first season of Orange is the New Black, a dramedy that would go on to garner praise and lots of buzz in the months that followed, we learned that Laura Prepon, who plays Alex in the prison-set drama, would only be appearing in a limited number of episodes when Season 2 returned, after which she was exiting the series. An update on that situation has made its way online, and while it doesn’t sound like the situation has changed, we at least know a bit more about what to expect from Prepon’s involvement in the drama going forward.
It's at this point in the summer that you're either too busy with summer fun to have time for television, or you're sunburnt and sick of barbecue and looking for some alone time, just you and your Netflix. The thing is, Netflix is like a virtual buffet. The thought of feasting on all of the goodies is exciting, but a little bit overwhelming.
Those who were hoping to see things work out for Alex and Piper in Orange is the New Black are in for a disappointment. Rumor has it, Laura Prepon's prepping a departure from the series. Her involvement in Season 2 of Jenji Kohan's prison-set Netflix drama will reportedly be for a limited number of episodes before she makes her exit.
If Netflix is looking to run with the premium cable channels out there in terms of the original content they offer their subscribers, Orange is the New Black is one more step in the right direction. It's funny, dark and a little bit raw, much like some of the series we see on pay cable. Most of all, it's original and it's set up to draw further and further into the story with each passing episode.
Next week, Netflix will unveil their next original series, and if Orange is the New Black turns out to be half as good as its trailer, we may be in for another great Netflix binge. Whether or not that turns out to be the case remains to be seen. In the meantime, the above clip is brief, but gives us a peek at what Taylor Schilling's character Piper Chapman is going through as she attempts to adjust to prison life. Rule #1: Being perceived as weak is a bad thing on the inside.
It's one thing when a series receives a renewal after one or two episodes of its first season air. In fact, it shows confidence on the network's part that whatever success the first few episodes received will continue throughout the show's first season. It's quite another for a series to receive a renewal before it even debuts. But that's exactly what's happened for Jenji Kohan's new Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
Netflix continues to roll out the original programming. Following up on the fourth season of Arrested Development, which debuted on the streaming video subscription service last month, is Jenji Kohan's new series Orange is the New Black, a drama about a woman who's sent off to prison for a year. The new trailer gives us a look at what life on the inside is like for her, and hints at a story of transformation.
While we're busy counting down the days until Arrested Development premieres and/or binge-watching Netflix's most recent offering in the way of original content, Hemlock Grove, the streaming video service is lining up a future series. Orange is the New Black comes from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan and today, Netflix has announced that they will debut all thirteen one-hour episodes of the series on Thursday, July 11.
Netflix's upcoming series from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan has added to the cast for a major recurring role. Taryn Manning of Hawaii Five-0 will appear on 9 out of the 13 episodes the streaming provider has ordered for Orange is the New Black.
The upcoming Netflix series Orange is the New Black has added a That 70s Show alum to the roster. Laura Prepon, who became a household name playing Donna in the Fox comedy, has been cast as one of the ladies in orange – inmates in a federal prison - for the series which is described as a drama with comedic elements.
Weeds creator Jenji Kohan’s new Netflix series Orange is the New Black has picked up its leading lady. The role has gone to Mercy star Taylor Schilling; she’ll play a woman who finds herself in jail as the result of her relationship with a man involved in the drug trade.
Jenji Kohan series may be Netflix bound. The Weeds creator’s new comedy project Orange is the New Black is apparently close to being picked up by Netflix, and should the deal go through, it’s said to go straight to series.
