First Trailer For Women's Wrestling Comedy Series 'GLOW'

Orange is the New Black and Weeds creator Jenji Kohan will serve as an executive producer alongside OITNB producer Tara Herrmann who previously worked with Kohan on Weeds too.

Netflix released a new trailer to its forthcoming 1980s comedy series that's all about gorgeous ladies of wrestling.

What do you think of the GLOW trailer? It's based on a true story, and as the photos we shared from the show a couple of weeks back suggest, the show is another post-Mad Men show that goes for exhaustively flawless period detail; in this case, it's the '80s, when the real GLOW was founded.

Fed set to leave interest rates unchanged, may hint at June hike
While the rate of economic growth leaves much to be desired, at 0.7% annual pace in the first quarter, unemployment hit a 10-year low, at 4.5%.

The Plot: GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (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.

This June, Netflix will debut its newest series GLOW-the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which follows a small wrestling federation made up entirely of women. The original show ran for four seasons from 1986-1990. "Yes", he responds. The trailer then launches into a montage of wrestling rehearsals; sassy comments from GLOW's star, a washed-up soap opera actress who happens to be Ruth's rival; Hollywood parties; and, of course, a few men who have the nerve doubt the women's abilities along the way.

Names such as Britt Baron, Kim Gatewood, Ellen Wong, Kia Stevens, Sunita Mani, Gayle Rankin, Rebekka Johnson, Laurie Francene Kinzer, Kate Nash and Jackie Tohn also fill the enormous recurring GLOW cast lineup.
