NYWIFT Member Alysia Reiner Plays Assistant Warden Natalie Figueroa in Orange is the New Black

Playing a cool but cold Assistant Warden, NYWIFT member Alysia Reiner is featured in the new Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black. Shot entirely in New York State, taking advantage of our great tax incentives, the show is the latest offering from the creator of Weeds, Jenji Kohan, whose credits include Sex and the City, The Gilmore Girls, Will and Grace and more.

The series' main character is Piper Chapman played by Taylor Schilling, whose wild past comes back to haunt her, resulting in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper trades her comfortable New York life for an orange prison jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.
