Netflix has debuted the trailer for Glow, a new period series about women’s wrestling starring Alison Brie. If the trailer is indicative of anything, it is that it locks tight on the 80’s milieu, a perfect backdrop for women trying to find their own voice and discovering power.
Check out the trailer here:
The series follows Brie’s character, Ruth, a down-on-her-luck Hollywood actress who in a fit of desperation auditions for an unusual casting call for a project called “glow”. Unbeknownst to her, it is a theatrical production that stars professional women wrestlers. Ruth is our “in” to “the personal and professional lives of a group of women who perform for a wrestling organization in Los Angeles.”
All episodes of Glow premiere June 23rd on Netflix.
