During the height of professional male wrestling in the United States, women’s pro wrestling came on the scene and featured the same types of over-the-top characters that made audiences flock to watch the men.

This fictional look at the wrestling promotion¬†stars Alison Brie (“Community”) as a struggling actress who lands a job as one of the ladies of GLOW when she hears about an audition hoping to find “unconventional women.”
