2013 Summer TV Picks
Posted by Amy Steele in TV on July 3, 2013
Easy Abby [web series]
Heard the joke that a lesbian brings a U-Haul on her second date? Get ready to flip those stereotypes with this smart, sexy, confident series written and directed by Wendy Jo Carlton [Jamie and Jessie are Not Together]. As described on the Easy Abby site: “Abby [Lisa Cordileone] is a 30–something woman who is trying to manage her anxiety attacks while working odd jobs and seducing as many women as possible.”
Available now on Easy Abby website and on YouTube.
Orange is the New Black on Netflix
Based on the memoir by Piper Kerman. Read my review and my interview with Piper Kerman.
I’ll likely binge-watch this one. Jenji Kohan [Weeds] created the series and it’s already been renewed for a second season.
Full season available for streaming July 11.
Project Runway S12 on Lifetime
Another season and this time around Tim Gunn will sit with the judges to provide inside scoop on designers in the workroom. Fans will be able to interact.

Top of the Lake on Netflix
Elisabeth Moss [Mad Men] plays an Australian detective. Beautiful scenery abounds despite the shady characters and dark, creepy story– a 12-year-old girl from a dangerous family tried to drown herself and when she’s interviewed the detective discovers she’s pregnant. Written and directed by Jane Campion.
Streaming now on Netflix.
