The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) Are Coming To Netflix!
Netflix finally releases the debut date of one of their most anticipated projects. ‘GLOW‘, the comedy about female wrestling in the 80’s, will premiere on June 23rd! All 10-episodes of the first season are going to be released that day.
Allison Brie from NBC’s ‘Community‘ will star in the show. It’s based on the infamous 1980’s female wrestling league called The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling created by David McLane. The wrestling show featured comedy sketches, colorful characters, and seasons that ran like a normal television show. It was a clear attempt to be vastly different than WWE. It seems like a precursor to current wrestling show ‘Lucha Underground‘, which also will debut on Netflix in the coming months.
What do you think of the series? Will you be checking it out on June 23rd?
Let me know in the comments below!
“The series will tell a new fictional story, set in the ’80s, of an actress (Brie) who uses the promotion and pro wrestling as her last-ditch attempt to become a star. Comedian Marc Maron will be playing the role of Sam Sylvia, “a washed-up Hollywood director who has a very complicated history with women”, a character that appears to be inspired by real-life Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling director Matt Cimber. Former WWE and TNA star Kia “Awesome Kong” Stevens is part of the cast, alongside Britt Baron, Jackie Tohn, Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, Kate Nash and Sunita Mani. Chavo Guerrero Jr. worked on coordinating the wrestling scenes for the series.”
