Jenji Kohan: Orange is the New Black

Hosted by

It seems like forever ago, but it was only 2011 when the future of Netflix was in peril. First, they announced a 60% price increase, without much of an explanation. And remember their short-lived deviation to Qwikster? On Monday, after announcing strong third-quarter earnings for the company, Netflix chief executive Reed Hastings said that Orange is the New Black "would end the year as our highest-watched original series ever." This week, Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan talks about her role as a provocateur, plus, how she feels about the whole concept of 'binge watching,' and how she plans to follow up her incredible first season.
