With the massive success of Orange Is the New Black, Netflix is wasting no time in jumping on the Jenji Kohan train with another female-fronted cast and narrative. Based on the real-life exploits of the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, GLOW centers on Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) as she attempts to transition from struggling actress to wrestling superstar. The series also stars Marc Maron and premieres on Netflix on June 23rd, 2017. But in addition to the trailer, we also have some pics from the series. Enjoy!
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.
