It takes a ‘war room’ to launch Netflix series

LOS GATOS, Calif. — Netflix’s Internet video subscription service works around the clock, but it’s unusual for more than two dozen of the company’s engineers and top managers to be huddled in a conference room at 10:30 on a midsummer Wednesday evening.

This is a special occasion. It’s near the end of a grueling day that will culminate in the premiere of ‘‘Orange Is the New Black,’’ the fourth exclusive Netflix series to be released in five months. The show’s first episode is called ‘‘I Wasn’t Ready,’’ and everyone in the room has been logging long hours to ensure that the title doesn’t apply to the debut.
