Do you love the Netflix series Orange is the New Black? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out Lifetime’s new show, American Princess. Jenji Kohan, the series creator of OITNB is the executive producer on American Princess and the show has much of the same wacky, dark humor.

Unwilling to face the humiliation and deal with her family in the aftermath, Amanda runs away and winds up at a Renaissance Faire.

More from Drama

I’ve had the pleasure of watching the first four episodes of American Princess and I’m in love with the series. It’s super fun, raunchy, and excellent late-night summer television. It follows in the footsteps of Lifetime’s former series, UnREAL, with a similar kind of comedy but unlike UnREAL, American Princess is more light-hearted and goofy.

Tonight, Lifetime will actually debut two episodes of the series with a special two-hour long premiere! The first episode shows how Amanda gets involved in the Ren Faire life and Episode 2 truly begins her journey into getting acclimated to the diverse world.

Apart from Amanda, other characters include a regal queen with an attitude problem and her gay best friend who also doubles as the fair’s resident Shakespeare impersonator. Lucas Neff plays Sir Pizzle Humpsalot (his real name is David), the man in the mud who parodies Shakespeare whilst getting dirty and shirtless frequently. He and Amanda share a few potentially romantic sparks. Then there’s Amanda’s newest friend and roommate, the sweet but zany Delilah.
