This sounds like a match made in orange jumpsuit heaven. That 70’s Show’s Laura Prepon will be star as a bisexual prisoner in Weeds’ creator Jenji Kohan’s new 13-episode prison drama for Netflix, according to TV Line.

The series, based on Piper Kerman’s book Orange is the New Black, the series centers on Piper (Taylor Schilling), whose “decade-old relationship with a drug-runner in college results in her arrest and multi-year detention in a federal penitentiary,” according to TV Line.

Prepon will play Piper’s ex the drug runner. A TV veteran known best for her turn as Donna on That 70’s Show, Prepon had a lead role on last year’s short-lived Are You There, Chelsea, according to IMDB.
