And now we have the first official full trailer for the series!
Executive produced by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan, GLOW tells the tale of Ruth Wilder (Community’s Alison Brie), a failed actress that receives an audition for “unconventional women”. The role is for ‘Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (G.L.O.W.)’, a wrestling company for other “Hollywood misfits” somewhat like Wilder. Ruth finds herself some competition as former soap actress Debbie Eagan (American Gods‘ Betty Gilpin) joins the cast and is put in the spotlight.
The show also has Orange Is The New Black’s Carly Mensch and Homeland’s Liz Flahive as its creators.
For fans of women’s wrestling, WWE and TNA’s Awesome Kong (AKA Kia Stevens) will be playing the regular character of Tamee!
