Netflix's New Original Series Is About Female Wrestlers in '80s L.A.

Get ready to ‘GLOW.’

With a track-record of producing hit shows like 13 Reasons Why and The Get Down, all eyes are on Netflix to see what they get us to binge-watch next — and it seems like their upcoming release, GLOW, might hit the mark.

Inspired by a real-life, short-lived ’80s phenomenon “Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling,” the show follows the journey of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), a struggling actress in L.A. who is thrust into the world of all-female wrestling. With so many shows broaching the topic of female empowerment right now, GLOW approaches the subject with a comedic ’80s edge (along with a stellar ’80s wardrobe) and focuses on the fact that although women may be pitted against each other in the ring, they bond outside of it.

With a diverse cast of women and the creator of OITNB behind it, it looks set to be a knockout. The series will be released in its entirety on June 23rd – until then peep the trailer above for a preview.
