Kate Mulgrew (Red) and Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) worked together before on the short-lived TV series Mercy (2009) as mother and daughter, while Michael Chernus (Cal Chapman) coincidentally played her brother on the same show. See more
The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men
without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more
