Women’s Wrestling Comedy Series ‘GLOW’ Heads Straight to Series at Netflix

Netflix has officially ordered “GLOW” — that is, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — straight to series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Orange is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan will executive produce the series, which is based on the 1980s female wrestling league.

Set in Los Angeles, “GLOW” will follow “an out of work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.” Though inspired by actual events, the series will be a fictionalized account. Co-created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, the “GLOW” remake — which has a 10-episode order — will be a half-hour comedy series.

The original series ran for four seasons from 1986-1990. Created by Matt Cimber, the show was based on Jackie Stallone’s women’s fitness gym Barbarella’s, where wrestler-turned-Hollywood stuntman Mando Guerrero was a trainer.

Kohan will executive produce with “Orange is the New Black” EP Tara Herrmann as well as Flahive and Mensch.
