'GLOW' Trailer: Alison Brie and Marc Maron Step Into the Ring

'GLOW' Trailer: Alison Brie and Marc Maron Step Into the Ring

Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, "GLOW" features an nearly all-female cast, and Betty Gilpin (Nurse Jackie) is a trailer stand-out as Debbie Eagan, a hilariously melodramatic ex-soap opera star who serves as Ruth's antagonist.

The world of wrestling can be a flamboyant and dramatic one, and the realm of women's grappling in the 1980s is, if possible even more insane. Alison Brie (Community, Sleeping With Other People) stars, along with Betty Gilpin (Nurse Jackie, True Story) and Marc Maron (Almost Famous, Marc Maron: Thinky Pain).

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.

Creators Liz Flahive (Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Weeds) will be showrunners.




None of that prepared me for our first full look at Netflix's GLOW.

We've been looking forward to this show for a while, and now we finally have a trailer to get excited about. The trailer previews the 11 Hollywood misfits who join Ruth in the ring, their director-coach (Marc Maron) and Ruth's best friend-turned-rival, soap star Debbie Egan (Betty Gilpin).

The first season of GLOW will run 10 episodes and debuts on Netflix on June 23, 2017. Marc Maron also stars as tired B-movie director Sam Sylvia, who is responsible for turning these women into, well, wrestlers.
