her comfortable New York life with fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs) , for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes about herself and the world at large.

Orange Is The New Black  will première, Wednesday October 9 at 8.30pm on Showcase.
