Big hair and spandex will be a-plenty in Netflix’s newest original series GLOW!
GLOW, short for ‘Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling’, follows the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.
In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin), a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life turns out not to be what it seems. At the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling super stardom.
Starring Alison Brie (Community), Betty Gilpin (Masters of Sex), Marc Maron (Maron), Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars), Ellen Wong (The Carrie Diaries) and Sunita Mani (Mr Robot). The series comes from the creators of Orange is The New Black, so we’re sure it will be full of strong female characters and many laughs.
GLOW is now available to watch on Netflix.
