Internet Week New York: Piper Kerman on 'Orange is the New Black'

What's the weirdest part of watching "Orange is the New Black" for Piper Kerman?

Author Piper Kerman of "Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison" has an unusual story, to say the least. Kerman grew up in a wealthy Boston family and attended Smith College, a tony private college. But after graduation, things took a strange turn when she found herself in the middle of a drug ring. Kerman was later indicted for money laundering and drug trafficking and spent time behind bars in Danbury, Connecticut.

It's no surprise that the hit Netflix show based on Kerman's life has taken off as one of the website's hottest shows. The series was just renewed for a third season and the second season will begin in June.

We caught up with Kerman at Internet Week New York, where she was hosting a talk with her husband Larry Smith and asked what it was like for her to watch a show based on real events from her life - it sounds pretty surreal.
