Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, Glow tells 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. All episodes coming June 23, 2017.
Here’s the First Trailer for GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wresting)
Who knew that Marc Maron playing a female pro wrestling league proprietor would be kind of perfect fit?
Well, GLOW creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch along with EP Jenji Kohan did and it looks like they’ve captured yet another great side of Alison Brie with this new dramedy focusing in on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling back in the 80s.
