Netflix have released a full trailer for the upcoming GLOW series, set to debut on the subscription service starting June 23.
Inspired by the real-life Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling promotion from the 1980's, the brand new show stars Alison Brie (Community, Sleeping With Other People) as Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress who stumbles upon pro wrestling as a means to make money.
Helped by B-Movie director Sam Sylvia (played by Marc Maron, star of Almost Famous), she and a cast of other Hollywood misfits literally learn the ropes in a bid to take the world by storm and prove themselves as entertainers.
GLOW comes from the same people who produced the smash-hit Orange Is The New Black series on Netflix. The show isn't strictly faithful to the original, cult-like promotion, although the Sylvia character is loosely based on GLOW founder Matt Climber.
Climber formed Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling in 1986, hiring in various out-of-work actresses, dancers and stunt women who were down on their luck and looking to rekindle their careers by trying anything imaginable. The show reflects that zany feel and atmosphere.
