"Orange is the New Black" on Netflix has been the latest surprise hit off of the streaming site. This coming off of the heels of the extremely successful and talked about "House of Cards" Season 1 starring Kevin Spacey among others. 

"Orange is the New Black" Season 1 raised eyebrows for it's controversial yet honest portrayal of prison life for women that is not been discussed much in popular culture especially through a series. 

Star Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman, shared this about joining the cast, "I read the pilots every year and a lot of it is another Law & Order, another CSI, another doctor show - they're all the same. This pilot came across my desk and it was unbelievable. It was so different from anything I'd read in so long. I needed to be part of this show," she said.

Season 2 of "Orange Is The New Black" is in the production stages right now and will be released sometime in 2014. 

Season 1 of "Orange is the New Black" became more popular with viewers over the highly anticipated new season of 'Arrested Development' that released earlier this year. 

The show is based around Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper Chapman that gets sent to prison 10 years after she got caught up in transporting drug money across international lines. She now has a fiance' Larry (Jason Biggs) and they are working through her being in prison together. 

Netflix released the original series "Orange is the New Black" Season 1, all 13 episodes, exclusively on Netflix July 11. 

"Orange is the New Black" is made by 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan, and is based on Piper Kerman's memoir of a year spent in prison.

Neflix decided to release all episodes of Season 1 of "House of Cards" at once, which was a big risk and could have backfired but fans of the show seemed to really get into it. 

It was such a success that Netflix decided to release the new season of "Arrested Development" in the same way earlier this year, releasing all episodes at one time. Then in July 2013 "Orange is the New Black" came out on Netflix in the same way and was another huge surprise success. So Neflix formula seems to be working. 

"Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price - and they'll more likely pay for it rather than steal it," said Kevin Spacey on Netflix plan. 

"House of Cards" is Netflix's first original series and received some nice validation with it's recent Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Drama Series". This was the first time a program from only a digital platform received a high-profile Emmy nomination. 

"House of Cards" ended up winning three awards on Emmy night 2013 a few weeks back which was a huge step forward. 

"House of Cards" received nine Emmy nominations all together while Netflix original series had 14 all together. 

Netflix seems to be doing things right these days.
