The third season of Orange Is The New Black, a fan favorite, will continue to follow Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) as a woman who was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for being an international drug mule 10 years previously.
What Happened, Miss Simone? is the documentary about Nina Simone, an American singer, pianist and civil rights activist. The film premiered earlier this year at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
