“I realized this isn’t a show about people in prison, this is about human stories, this is about people and their lives and their lives are so much more than their crimes,’ Uzo expressed about how she felt when reading the first script. “I then realized, oh this has something to say, this could potentially do something for the world, which is amazing.”
