Headlock your eyes on the first photos from GLOW, Netflix’s upcoming comedy inspired by the short-lived but beloved wrestling series from the 1980s.
Premiering Friday, June 23 and cocreated by Nurse Jackie‘s Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, GLOW tells the story of Ruth Wilder (played by Community’s 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 alongside a dozen Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Nurse Jackie‘s Betty Gilpin) a former soap starlet 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. At the helm of it all is Sam Sylvia (Maron‘s Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom.
