Netflix is at it again and Xbox Live is helping to bring the action right to your living room. Today, the latest Netflix Original Series “Orange is the New Black” launched around the world* and you can easily find and watch all 13 episodes on your Xbox 360 immediately.** From the creator of “Weeds,” and based on the popular memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, the comedic drama set in a women’s prison follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), an engaged Brooklynite whose decade-old relationship with international drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal prison.  

The series' diverse ensemble which also includes Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Laverne Cox and Taryn Manning promises to deliver comedy and drama all wrapped into one. For a sneak peak, take a look at the trailer below:
