Back in 1986, The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) introduced the world to female superstars like Mt. Fiji, Godiva, and Babe the Farmer’s Daughter via a Las Vegas-based syndicated TV show. It was programming brilliance, and for four seasons, fans of professional wrestling were hooked. Now, 30 years later, Netflix is taking us back to GLOW’s glory days with a 10-episode season set in LA during the heyday of the first-ever weekly women’s wrestling show.
We’ve got seven first look photos from the comedy, which stars Alison Brie as Ruth Wilder, a struggling out-of-work actress who gets her big break (possibly literally) on the over-the-top ‘80s TV show, and Marc Maron as the man who hopes to make her dreams come true.
GLOW, created by Nurse Jackie vets Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, premieres June 23 on Netflix.
