Although Kohan briefly considered rabbinical school, she went on to write for other TV series, including "Mad About You," "Gilmore Girls," "Sex and the City" and "Tracy Takes On," for which she earned an Emmy and a CableACE Award. But she's best known as the writer, producer and creator of the Emmy-nominated "Weeds," which follows a suburban widow who turns to selling pot to support herself and her sons.
Kohan is also the co-creator, writer and executive producer of "Orange Is the New Black," a Netflix original series based on Piper Kerman's memoir about her year in a women's prison.
From the creator of "Weeds" comes a heartbreaking and hilarious series set in a women's prison. Piper trades her comfortable life for an orange jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.
