The executive producers for “Orange is The New Black” is bringing another strong female series to Netflix called G.L.O.W. “Glorious Women of Wrestling” in June.
The new Netflix Comedy GLOW is about the 1986 all female wrestling TV show that gave the viewers a lot of entertainment with their colorful casting.
GLOW brought out outrageous characters that were made up of mostly actresses, models, dancers and/or stunt women who were briefly trained to perform in the ring while wearing whatever character’s costume they were acting as.
The new series on Netflix is the latest GLOW project after the 2012 GLOW documentary by it’s newest owner since 2001, Ursula Hayden who played Babe the Farmer’s Daughter, Princess of Darkness and Donna Matrix.
The series will star Alison Brie who leads the show as a struggling actress named Ruth. Ruth is nearly broke and desperate to land her breaking role when she is called for a casting call.
It’s at that casting call that “Ruth” enters GLOW’s for “unconventional women” to play a role that she doesn’t know what it is until character Sam Sylvia says, “this is GLOW.”
Ruth will ask if Sam is hiring them to play wrestlers or if they are the wrestlers because it’s unclear what GLOW is about.
Once the women get their roles for the series, we see that GLOW really focuses stereotyping the 12 women who are performing as wresters.
