G.L.O.W. Coming to Netflix

Women’s Wrestling before WWE claimed the “Women’s Revolution” for themselves.

Alison Brie will soon star in a new Netflix series called G.L.O.W., which stands for the “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.” The premise itself is based off of an actual professional wrestling promotion where women wrestled on a televised show until 1990. It’s real. Wikipedia it. That site never lies.

As you can see, these Women are not like the one’s you will see today in WWE. Big hair. Outlandish outfits. Some showing more than others. Okay, maybe you’ll see that in today’s WWE, but the mantra is a bit different. These women were outspoken, politically incorrect, and sometimes distasteful, yet athletic and actually good at wrestling. This series actually stems from an award-winning documentary. Watch the trailer for yourself here (and search for the full movie on Youtube like a true geek).

This series centers around Brie, who is an actress now out of work, and decides to take a shot at her dream: professional wrestling. I’m not sure how the comedic nature of this will mesh with the wrestling aspect of it, but Jenji Kohan is apart of it, and that’s all you need to know. Everything that guy touches turns out really well. You may have heard of or witnessed Weeds? Orange is the New Black? Yeah. Thought so.

Netflix wants 10 episodes of this show (Netflix Originals also tend to be super solid, so it’s a big win for fans there as well), so we will have to wait and see when a release date and the rest of the cast are announced. Brie is a phenomenal start though. Any chance WWE wrestlers take part…?
