Lifetime has given a straight to series orders to a new Jenji Kohan-produced series American Princess, the network announced Thursday.
The 10-episode series follows a socialite who runs off to join a Renaissance Faire after her wedding goes awry, according to Lifetime.
American Princess is created, written and executive produced by Jamie Denbo (Ronna & Beverly), with Kohan (Orange is the New Black, Weeds, GLOW), and Tara Herrmann (Orange is the New Black, GLOW) also serving as executive producers.
The series is produced by A+E Studios in association with IM Global Television.
“Jenji has always taken interesting and unconventional worlds and given them heart and humor,” said Liz Gateley, executive vice president and Head of Programming for Lifetime in a statement. “From the get-go, American Princess was a concept we loved as it’s incredibly relatable to want to parachute from one’s life in difficult times. In Jenji, Jamie and Tara’s hands, we know this will be hilarious and special."
