You have to give credit to Netflix where it's due; they're really getting behind the idea of original stories from unique perspectives - and it doesn't get that much more unique than this.

Glow is a new TV series that takes place in the world of women's wrestling in the '80s. Community's Alison Brie plays a struggling actress in Los Angeles who decides to try and make her fame in the world of professional wrestling. However, she'll have to square off against another out-of-work actress, played by Elementary's Betty Gilpin. Steering the whole wrestling promotion is Marc Maron, who plays a washed-up B-movie director.

According to iMDB, a number of recognisable names from wrestling are involved - including Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and NXT's Alex Riley. The story itself is based on the real-life G.L.O.W., which stands for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, a wrestling promotion that ran on television in the '80s.

Although Glow is fictional, it'll likely reference the original show itself and some of the behind-the-scenes stories from the era.

Glow hits Netflix from June 23rd.
