Meet the gorgeous ladies of wrestling in Netflix’s ‘GLOW’ trailer


The first official trailer for Netflix‘s series GLOW gives us a look at the electrifying early days of women’s wrestling.

Alison Brie plays Ruth Wilder, an actress looking for the right part. She soon crosses paths with Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), the ringleader of GLOW—Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which was an actual series that ran from 1986-1989. There’s lots of teased hair and spandex, and the series is co-executive-produced by Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, who has a knack for creating “unconventional women.”

GLOW premieres on June 23.
