During the course of the series run, actress Alysia Reiner
(Natalie) has said that one of the most rewarding aspects of the production experience was the opportunity to work with the actual "Women's Prison Association" in New York. Many of her fellow actors volunteered their time to pack backpacks, meet the children of female inmates and, in conjunction with "Habitat for Humanity," spent a day painting a new building used to house women awaiting discharge from prison.

The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men
without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more
