Makers of ‘Orange is the New Black’ Introduce New Series ‘GLOW’

OITNB writers and producers bringing new Netflix comedy series

From the women who brought you Orange is the New Black and Nurse Jackie comes GLOW, a new Netflix series about a struggling actress in 1980s LA who gets thrown into the world of women’s pro wrestling. Living off of scraps and crappy gigs, Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) finds a new, promising gig with an eclectic group of women and a waning director.

Judging by OITNB, we already know what executive producers Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann can do when it comes to character-driven television, and it looks like GLOW will be no different. GLOW hits Canadian Netflix on Friday, June 23. Watch the trailer below.
