Looks like Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner will be joining the team of Orange is the New Black for season 4. News just broke that Weiner will direct an episode of the series!
According to CinemaBlend, the two show creators are close friends so this isn’t surprising at all…
Jenji Kohan and Weiner are reportedly good friends, so a partnership between the two for Kohan’s massively successful series makes perfect sense. Weiner joins an impressive group of directors who will be taking their turn at Orange this season, including actress Jodie Foster.
Orange Is The New Black premiered in 2013 and has been extremely successful. Revolving around the inmates and staff of a female correctional facility, it was an instant hit that garnered 12 Primetime Emmy nominations for the first season. Boasting an ensemble cast of diverse actresses, Orange Is The New Black utilizes flashbacks to give the audience a peek into each inmate’s past, making for a group of characters who are all fleshed out, and adored by the audience.
