Jenji Kohan working on Renaissance Faire-themed series for Lifetime

UPI News Service, 08/11/2017 

Lifetime says it has ordered American Princess, a scripted series about a heart-broken socialite who starts a new life working at a Renaissance Faire.

Liz Gateley, executive vice president and head of programming for the network, announced the project from Jenji Kohan, Jamie Denbo, and Tara Herrmann Thursday.

Season 1 will include 10, hour-long episodes.

"Jenji has always taken interesting and unconventional worlds and given them heart and humor," Gateley said 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."

"In the current landscape of scripted television programs, American Princess is a true standout," added Paul Buccieri, president A+E Studios and A+E Networks Portfolio Group. "This series continues building on the premium storytelling that is a foundation of A+E Studios, and we are thrilled to partner with [producers] IM Global."

No casting has been announced yet.

Kohan is the creator of Orange is the New Black and Weeds.
