GLOW - Betty Gilpin Joins Netflix Series



GLOW - Alison Brie to Star in Netflix Series

The 1980s wrestling comedy from Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan has enlisted Nurse Jackie favorite Betty Gilpin, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

GLOW — aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — is inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league. The 10-episode comedy is set in Los Angeles and will showcase big hair and body slams as it tells the fictionalized story of Ruth (Alison Brie), an out-of-work actress who finds one last chance to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers. The comedy is based on the professional women's wrestling syndicated TV series that existed in the '80s. The comedy was picked up to series in May.

Gilpin will portray Debbie Eagan, a former soap star who left show business to have a baby, only to be sucked back in when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems.
