We are in the golden age of television right now. Yes our TV channels are still clogged with lots of bad reality TV but thanks to the likes of HBO, AMC and now Netflix, finally money is being invested back into quality entertainment and we are getting the likes of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, House of Cards, and now Orange is the New Black.
Kate Mulgrew stars as Red, the prison’s head honcho (for want of a better word), in this new must see TV show.
I recently caught up with Kate to talk about this gem of a role, why a show set in a women’s prison is resonating with so many and the women are finding a place in countless hearts, what’s in store for Red in season 2 and lots more. Listen below.
Orange is the New Black was not in contention for this year’s Emmys (it screened after the nominations date closed) but I have no doubt that this time next year it will be dominating many of the Drama categories!
If you haven’t watch Orange is the new Black, do. A word of warning though, bingeing will ensue – but it is so worth it!
