VIDEO: New Netflix Series ‘GLOW’ Goes Inside the Ring of ’80s-Style Lady Wrestling
Alison Brie and Marc Maron star in the streaming service's upcoming comedyMay 15, 2017
On Monday, Netflix dropped the trailer (above) for their upcoming ’80s-set original series, “GLOW,” aka the “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.” Alison Brie (“Community,” “Mad Men”) stars as an aspiring Los Angeles actress who finds herself swept up in a fledgling pro-wrestling organization run by B-movie director Sam Sylvia (played by Stern Show guest Marc Maron). Though Brie’s character Ruth Wilder is fictional, “GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling” was a very real syndicated TV show.
True to the decade in which it takes place, the trailer for “GLOW” promises big hair, tight spandex, and a drug-serving robot.
“GLOW” will be helmed by Liz Flahive (“Homeland”) and Carly Mensch (“Orange is the New Black”) and hits Netflix on June 23.
