Trailer Alert: GLOW

The coolest part about GLOW, the newest Netflix original series from the minds who gave us Orange is the New Black, is that it’s all based on real life. GLOW was a women’s wrestling organization in the mid to late 80s that was unlike anything that came before it and hasn’t come close to being replicated since. I watched a documentary GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling a few years ago and it opened my eyes to this wonderful universe that I never knew existed, so I’m glad that Alison Brie, Marc Maron and everyone else in the cast will be bringing it back to life. While the original GLOW stars were relatively unknown, some of them went on to mainstream success. Lisa Moretti, known to WWE fans as Ivory, was a staple of the Attitude Era Women’s division in the late 90’s and early 2000s while others like Olympia Hartauer and Trudy Adams wrestled for the AWA and WWF in the 80s and 90s.

GLOW is a fascinating story, and I’m happy to see it being told again. All episodes will be available June 23rd.
