TVLine Items: OITNB Casts Alicia Witt, Leaving Neverland Trailer and More

Alicia Witt Orange Is the New Black

Orange Is the New Black is adding some Witt to its seventh and final season.

Alicia Witt (The Exorcist, Nashville) will recur on the Netflix series as Zelda, a professional fundraiser for high-end non-profit organizations, our sister site Deadline reports. The character is described as “a strong, chic and low-key New York sophisticate who went to Dartmouth [and] strives to be in control of every situation.”

Witt’s other TV credits include Twin Peaks, Justified and Friday Night Lights.
