Glow premieres


The series revolves around the 1980s syndicated women’s professional wrestling circuit, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling or GLOW. It is a fictionalized look at what it took behind the scenes to get such a show on the air.
It revolves around earnest go-getter Ruth, a broke actor living in L.A. and frustrated by her lack of options for full-dimensional, meaty roles as a woman. Soon, her agent calls her with a mysterious but promising opportunity: A TV casting call being held at a gym. When she shows up at a gym in suburban LA, she’s surrounded by women who don’t fit the mold of Hollywood beauty… this is not your typical casting call.
B-list schlock director Sam is putting together a TV series featuring female wrestlers, hoping to capitalize on the popularity of the likes of Hulk Hogan and The Iron Sheik. He describes it as family friendly porn you can watch with your kids.
Jenji Kohan, who created OITNB and Weeds, serves as executive producer of the show.
All episodes available on Netflix.
