"Orange Is the New Black" and "Wentworth" are popular shows about the lives of women in prison that both premiered in 2013. "OITNB" is credited as the landmark drama about the lives of women in prison. But some TV enthusiasts have said "Wentworth" is a more well-crafted and grittier portrayal of female life in prison. "Wentworth" may be an Australian show on season seven, but it has held an international following thanks to Netflix. So, which is the best women's prison show? 📺
