Set during the '80s, 'GLOW' follows a group of women who make up the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling - GLOW, for short. Directed by an angry cult filmmaker and bankrolled by an eccentric wrestling fan, the TV series features women's wrestling and bizarre characters. Some of the people behind the character are actors just looking for work, while others are athletes looking to prove themselves or a chance to start over. Yet, when they come together and battle it out on screen, it's unlike anything you've ever seen before.
A comedy-drama set in the world of women's wrestling.
There are no scheduled airings for this show.

Currently, all two seasons of 'GLOW are available now on Netflix.When's the third season going to arrive on Netflix?
Right now, no official date has been set for the third season. All that's known so far is that it will arrive some time in Summer 2019.What will Season 3 of 'GLOW' be about?
The finale of Season 2 saw the actual TV show picked up by a Las Vegas mogul who wants to have the show performing at the Riviera. Sam (Marc Maron) was spurned by Ruth (Alison Brie), who's now in a relationship with Russell (Victor Quinaz), Sam's cameraman. Ruth, however, co-directed the final episode of 'GLOW' and clearly has a knack for it - which is probably going to make their working relationship more difficult.
Meanwhile, Bash (Chris Lowell) has married Rhonda (Kate Nash) so that she can stay in the country, however Bash may have simply done this as a way of dealing with the fact that he may be gay.
These are just the loose ends left with Season 2, so expect a few of these - and some more - to play a bigger part in the third season.Is that the same Marc Maron from the WTF Podcast?
That's right, Marc Maron from the smash-hit podcast 'WTF' plays Sam Sylvia on 'GLOW'. Before he began acting, Maron was - and still is - primarily known for his standup comedy. He also had his own show, 'Maron', on IFC in the US and is also available on Netflix.Are there any real wrestlers involved in 'GLOW'?
As a matter of fact, yes, there is. Kia Stevens, who plays Tamme 'The Welfare Queen' Dawson, is a professional wrestler and wrestles under the name 'Awesome Kong'. Carlos Edwin Jr. and George Murdoch, who played the brother and father of Carmen 'Machu Pichu' Wade, both wrestled in the WWE under the names 'Carlito' and 'Brodus Clay'. Chavo Guerrero Jr., who was a nephew of wrestling icon Eddie Guerrero and a six-time Cruiserweight Champion in WWE, played the trainer in the first few episodes of the first season of 'GLOW'.Is 'GLOW' based on real-life wrestlers?
While the character names have been changed and the stories have been fictionalised, there really was a 'GLOW' TV series in the '80s that featured characters relatively similar to the ones in the show. The real-life TV series was the first of its kind anywhere in the world, and was the subject of a documentary that inspired the TV series. The documentary, 'GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling', is also available on Netflix.
