The 25 Most Anticipated TV Shows of Summer 2013

6. Orange Is the New Black (Netflix)

Stars Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, Danielle Brooks, Michael Harney, Michelle Hurst, Maria Dizzia, Natasha Lyonne
Premiere Date: July 11

The Netflix original series, produced by Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, delves into yet another drug-scapade from the showrunner. Based on the Piper Kerman's memoir of the same name, the series follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) during her time in prison for her connection to a drug smuggler. But don't jump to any conclusions about this turning into a bizarro women-in-prison spectacle if you haven't read the book. If the cast of comedy vets (Jason Biggs, Natasha Lyonne and Laura Prepon) are any indication, the show will be much more of a dark comedy.
