Netflix can do no wrong. The streaming service continues to showcase original content, backed by some pretty impressive talent. Jenji Kohan’s (Weeds, Orange Is the New Black) next series centers on the true story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). GLOW, starring Alison Brie and Marc Maron, premieres on Netflix on June 23rd, 2017.
GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (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 is not what it seems. And 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 stardom.
