The upcoming comedy series will enter the ring on Netflix in June.
Netflix has released a date announcement teaser for its new show, 'GLOW.' The series comes from creators Liz Flahive ('Homeland') and Carly Mensch ('Orange is the New Black'), and is set to hit Netflix on June 23.
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 is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, coked-up B-movie director who now must lead 14 women on the journey to wrestling stardom.

Jenji Kohan ('Orange is the New Black') and Tara Herrmann ('Orange is the New Black') will serve as executive producers for the series.
