Plot Summary

The show itself takes place in a fictional women’s prison in Litchfield, NY. There is a jail in Litchfield Connecticut, which was built in 1812 and is currently for sale. The inspiration for the jail in Orange is the New Black, however, is FCI Danbury in Connecticut. A minimum-security women’s prison at the moment, FCI Danbury is going to house only men starting next year. Inmates are currently being transferred from the 1940-built structure. Famous inmates of FCI Danbury include: Lauryn Hill, Sun Myung Moon, and Jean Therese Brown.
