Who knew prison life could be so dope? With 12 Emmy nods under their belt, the cast of the Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black, is riding high on success. Today’s Tamron Hall went on set of the Jenji Kohan created series during the filming of the third season to take a tour of Litchfield prison. Hall spoke with character favorites including Crazy Eyes played by Uzo Aduba and Taylor Schilling who plays Piper Chapman. In a brief sit down, Schilling tells Hall the show’s success is based on a collective focus of the three-dimensional characters, not just the lead. “The story is about a group of women,”Schilling said. “It’s not about one particular character. I think the beauty lies in all of these individual voices being heard.” In the five-minute clip, Hall, who earned the jail name “Fancy Teeth” during her brief stay, also toured the kitchen and the showers.
