Watch: ‘Orange is the New Black’ Gets ‘Arrested Development’-Style Opening Credits

In its campaign to promote “Orange is the New Black’s” season two (and remind Emmy voters about the positively-reviewed season one), Netflix has combined it with another one of their popular originals — “Arrested Development.”

Netflix, which streams the first three seasons of “Arrested Development” and picked up a fourth season as an original, gave the opening credits of “Orange is the New Black” the “Arrested Development” treatment. It even went so far as to get Ron Howard, an executive producer on “Arrested Development” and its narrator, to do the voiceover.

“And now the story of a wealthy girl who lost everything, and the one family who had no choice but to help her keep it together,” the voiceover reads.

Season two of “Orange is the New Black” hits the streaming service on Friday. It has already been renewed for a season three.

The comedy-drama was created by Jenji Kohan and is based on the Piper Kerman memoir “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.” It stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Laverne Cox, Pablo Schreiber, Danielle Brooks, Taryn Manning and Uzo Aduba.
