The Official Trailer for the professional wrestling comedy 'GLOW' was released by Netflix, and the company will release the series on June 23rd. Netflix also released a promotional description of the show, which reads:
"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."
The show is loosely based on the 1980's women's pro wrestling league 'Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling' and aired for several years. Former WWE & WCW Superstar Chavo Guerrero Jr. oversaw the wrestling sequences for the show and former WWE Stars Alex Riley and Kia Stevens (Awesome Kong & Kharma) will make appearances on the show as well. The trailer for GLOW is shown below.
