Here is an exclusive look at the first trailer for Netflix‘s latest original series, Jenji Kohan’s comedic drama Orange Is The New Black, which premieres July 11. I hear Netflix brass are high on the series and are already eyeing a second season. Based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, the 13-episode series stars Taylor Schilling as engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman whose seemingly perfect life is turned upside down when she must serve time in a federal women’s prison, Jason Biggs as her well-meaning but long-suffering fiancé and Laura Prepon as her drug runner ex-girlfriend. The series’ ensemble also includes Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Michelle Hurst, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning.
