The cast of Netflix’s new series GLOW discuss their characters and the appeal of the project in this new nearly three-minute behind the scenes video. The series was created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Orange is the New Black) and stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron, Britney Young, Jackie Tohn, Kate Nash, and Chris Lowell. Flahive, Mensch, Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann serve as executive producers.
GLOW will premiere on Friday, June 23, 2017.
The Plot: Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison 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. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin), a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life turns out not to be what it seems. At the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling super stardom.
