By now, you’ve probably heard of the Netflix hit prison series, Orange Is the New Black. What you may not know is that the series was based on a true story. Piper Kerman, the real life Piper Chapman, spent 13 months in a minimum security prison in Connecticut. Kerman wrote a book about her experience and Weeds director, Jenji Kohan, adapted it into a TV show. The show is packed with interesting inmates, most wearing orange jumpsuits and minimal makeup. Let’s take a look at what the Orange Is the New Black cast looks like outside the Litchfield prison walls!
