GLOW’s first full season is finally available on Netflix for streaming! You can watch all episodes here!
Inspired by the real story of the 1980’s female wrestling league, the series set in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams will be the fictionalized story of an out of work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.
GLOW was co-created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch and Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann serve as executive producers. Flahive previously worked on Homeland and Nurse Jackie while Mensch worked with Kohan as a producer for Orange is the New Black and previously on Weeds.
Netflix has released the first teaser for the upcoming 1980’s female wrestling comedy series G.L.O.W. The 10-episode first season of the series, from Weeds and Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, was announced last year for Netflix, with a cast led by Alison Brie and Marc Maron, with Betty Gilpin, Jackie Tohn, Elizabeth Perkins and Ellen Wong also listed among the cast.
G.L.O.W. tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (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 is not what it seems. And 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 stardom.
Glow premieres on Friday, June 23 on Netflix.
Elizabeth Perkins and Madison Davenport (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) are set to co-star opposite Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson in Sharp Objects, HBO’s 8-Episode drama series from Entertainment One. Additionally, Weeds alumna Elizabeth Perkins will guest star on the upcoming new season of HBO’s Larry David comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Written by Marti Noxon based on the book by Gillian Flynn and directed by Jean Marc Vallée, Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams). Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
Elizabeth Perkins will play Jackie, the local gossip and renowned alcoholic, trashy, fun, big hair, big makeup. She knows she’s a “backwoods Barbie” and has a sense of humor about it.
Noxon, who serves as writer/showrunner, executive produces alongside Adams; Flynn, who is writing multiple episodes; and Big Little Lies‘ Vallée, who is directing all episodes and serves as co-editor. Also executive producing are Jason Blum, Charles Layton, Jessica Rhoades for Blumhouse Television and Nathan Ross.
Elizabeth Perkins, three-time Emmy nominee for her role on Showtime’s Weeds, recently guest starred on the hit new NBC drama series This Is Us. She is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
