Netflix Sets July Debut for New Original Series LA Times

Netflix has rolled out plans for the debut of its latest original series. The Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker reports that the streaming service will premiere "Orange Is the New Black" July 11.

The rollout will follow the premiere of Netflix’s revival of "Arrested Development" on May 26, the report notes.

“Orange” is set in a women's prison and is based on the bestselling memoir by Piper Kerman. It was adapted by "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan and stars Taylor Schilling as a young woman who ends up in prison on a drug sentence.

Other cast members include Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew and Natasha Lyonne.

Like Netflix's other original shows, the service plans to release all 13 episodes of the series at once.
