A new project from Jenji Kohan has received a series order. The latest project from the creator of Showtime’s “Weeds” and Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” was ordered by Lifetime, which announced plans Thursday for “American Princess.”
The project, from Kohan, Jamie Denbo and Tara Herrmann, received a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes. “American Princess” follows a socialite who runs off to join a Renaissance Faire after her wedding goes awry.
The project comes from A+E Studios in association with IM Global Television. Liz Gateley, EVP and Head of Programming for Lifetime, announced the order.
“Jenji has always taken interesting and unconventional worlds and given them heart and humor,” Gateley said. “From the get-go, ‘American Princess’ was a concept we loved as it’s incredibly relatable to want to parachute from one’s life in difficult times. In Jenji, Jamie and Tara’s hands, we know this will be hilarious and special.”
