UK TELEVISION PREMIERE ON SONY CHANNEL

The Emmy Award winning series, from Lionsgate, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK is set to have its broadcast premiere in the UK on Sony Channel (Sky 157, Virgin 193, BT 331 and TalkTalk 331).

The UK television premiere of Season 1 will launch with a double bill every Wednesday at 9pm from 19 April. 

This critically acclaimed series, based on a memoir of the same name, is about engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade 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. As she struggles to adjust to her new reality, she finds unexpected laughter, tears, conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric and outspoken group of inmates.

The series also stars Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols), Michael Harney (Sam Healy), Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset) and Kate Mulgrew (Galina "Red" Reznikov).

For its first season, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK received 12 Emmy Award nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, winning three.

This thought-provoking, boundary-breaking, television phenomenon will have you committed from the start.
