Netflix is on a roll with its original content. While some binge-watchers might balk at the idea of the company putting ads in front of each episode, no one can deny that shows like Daredevil are just as good as, if not better than, most network TV dramas these days.

Orange Is The New Black is one of Netflix’s most popular originals, but newcomer Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is also grabbing attention for its cult themes and its 30 Rock-inspired humor.

Clearly, Netflix has two viral hits right now, each a success in its own right—but what if you mashed up those two fan-favorites into one great trailer for a new television show?

Moviefone decided to do just that. The entertainment site felt that while OITNB was totally great on its own, it needed a little more Titus Andromedon. The hilarious diva and pinot-noir-drinking character who helps Kimmy Schmidt through her time of crisis and transition would definitely add some sparkle and charm to the otherwise-stale beige inside Litchfield Penitentiary.

The mashup is believable, too. It took careful editing and a deep knowledge of the best moments from both TV shows, but Moviefone pulled it off. Andromedon’s viral one-liners add a new kind of drama to the women’s prison.

After watching this mashup, we think it’s clear that Andromedon would fit right in.
