Title: GLOW
Post by: wilder on May 16, 2017, 04:50:26 AM

Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison 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 turns out not to be what it seems. 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 super stardom.

Release Date - June 23rd on Netflix

Shot by Christian Sprenger, same DP as "Baskets" and "Atlanta"

This shown is better than the no replies in this thread would have you believe.  Brie.  Maron.  Season 2 just doubles down on the campy fun with a great finale. Check it out if you haven't.  That is all.
