The comedic drama stars Taylor Schilling as a Brooklyn resident named Piper who winds up behind bars after her decade-old personal and business relationship with drug runner Alex (That '70s Show's Laura Prepon) comes to light.

The series follows Piper's life as she swaps the comfort of her life in Brooklyn -- complete with her husband-to-be Larry (Jason Biggs) -- for an orange jumpsuit in prison, where she is tasked with creating alliances with the rest of the inmates.
