'Orange Is The New Black': On The Set

Access’ Liz Hernandez joined Samira Wiley (Poussey), Dascha Polanco (Dayanara), and Danielle Brooks (Taystee) for a tour of the “Orange is the New Black” sets. And it got real, especially reenacting Danielle’s very first shower scene.

She came under attack by social media. Publicity wise I had no idea. I hate you. Bam, slam. It was a fair fight. Season two of "Orange is the new black" is in full swing on netflix. Season one has earned the show 12 Emmy nominations, the most for any comedy this year. Season three is already shooting in New York. That's where Liz is right now. Liz.

Do they purposefully make it bad? I mean I see them back there opening huge industrial size of cans, whatever we're eating or carrots. It's all canned. For the actual set, we have to eat some of that stuff. In some cases come to blows. This is the common area. The famous scene with king Kong in season one when she gets king Kong knocked out of her hand. It happened right there. She kept it right here in the ice box. She was upset about it. They got into a fight, a scuffle. That was my first day on set actually. Coming up, jay Leno's return
