Based on the memoir of the same name, Orange follows the upper-middle-class Piper after a decade-old involvement with a drug runner (That ’70s Show‘s Laura Prepon) earns her a year-long jail sentence.

Jason Biggs (American Pie), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie) and Pablo Schrieber (Weeds) co-star in the series, all 13 episodes of which will premiere on Netflix on Thursday, July 11.
