Orange Is The New Black

"Orange Is the New Black" is a comedic drama set in a women's prison that tells the story of engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman, whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable life with fiance Larry for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture.

    When Piper first enters the prison, another inmate explains to her that people tend to stick to their own "tribes" - that is, racial or ethnic groups. In Piper Kerman's source memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, she describes much the same phenomenon and provides the demographic breakdown she experienced in prison: "The minimum-security camp at Danbury housed approximately 200 women at any given time, though sometimes it climbed to a nightmarishly cramped 250. About half were Latin[a] (Puerto Rican, Dominican, Colombian), about 24 percent white, 24 percent African-American and Jamaican, and then a very random smattering: one Indian, a couple of Middle Eastern women, one tiny Chinese woman in her sixties."

    The title of this series and the memoir on which it is based is a reference to a common American saying that originated in the fashion industry: "(Non-black color) is the new black," meaning that another color (such as gray or navy blue) is that season's basic wardrobe builder in the same way that black normally is. Because bright orange is a common color for American prisoners' uniforms, the title is a play on this common expression.
