The show will be Jenji Kohan's third series after OITNB and GLOW


Jenji Kohan is already responsible for doe two of the most successful shows in the form of Orange is the New Black and GLOW, and is currently working on a new show titled Slutty Teenage Bounty Hunters.

And now, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, Maddie Phillips (Van Helsing, Supernatural) and Anjelica Bette Fellini (The French Dispatch, The Gifted) will star in the comedy, which comes from creator Kathleen Jordan (American Princess) and is executive produced by the Orange is the New Black creator and her producing partner Tara Herrmann.

The series falls under Kohan and Herrmann's overall deal with Netflix, which includes the final season of OITNB and third season of GLOW both releasing this summer. (Kohan also producec American Princess for Lifetime.)

"After spending the last seven years in prison, we were ready to break free and have some serious fun," says Kohan, referencing the end of OITNB, in a statement. "Kathleen [Jordan] provided a world we were excited to jump into and shake our hips around."

Robert Sudduth (On My Block, American Princess) will serve as showrunner and Blake McCormick (Mad Men, True Detective) is also exec producing. Jesse Peretz (OITNB, GLOW) will be directing the pilot.

“We’re not here to judge, y’all. We’re here to embrace the nuance," say Jordan and Sudduth in a joint statement. "This show is really about two young women trying to live their lives by their own rules, haters be damned. We can’t wait for the world to meet Sterling and Blair. And as for the title, 'Sex Positive Teenage Bounty Hunters' didn’t have the same ring.”

Slutty Teenage Bounty Hunters revolves around fraternal twin sisters Sterling and Blair Wesley, played by Phillips and Fellini, respectively. Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Virginia Williams (Fuller House, Charmed) round out the supporting cast.
