Plot Synopsis

Set in Los Angeles in the 1980s and inspired by the real story of a female wrestling league, GLOW is a half-hour comedy series that centers on a fictionalized crew of misfits, who reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Desperate to jump-start her career, struggling actress Ruth Wilder heads to a casting call at an LA gym -- and quickly realizes it's not a typical audition. Once the final group is selected, Cherry tries to whip them into shape, while Sam sets out in pursuit of a star for his show. Ruth acts out an uncomfortable scene. Then, Sam's flashy young producer drops in and whisks the girls off to Malibu to party, but artistic differences soon threaten to spoil the fun. On Friday, June 23, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 10-episode first season of GLOW.
