Watch The Trailer For Netflix's '80s Ladies Wrestling Comedy GLOW

Get ready for your newest Netflix obsession: the first trailer for Netflix's '80s ladies wrestling comedy GLOW is here. The series, which is executive produced by Orange is the New Black's Jenji Kohan and Tara Hermann, stars Alison Brie as Ruth, an out-of-work actress who turns to women's wrestling for one last chance at stardom. Led by washed-up, coked-up B-movie director Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), Ruth must compete against 13 other Hollywood misfits, including her rival 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. The show is based on the 1980s professional wrestling variety show Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

The trailer hints at a glittery, joke-filled '80s extravaganza. It begins with Brie's Ruth at an audition, delivering a deep monologue about good guys and bad guys. However, she is pretty quickly told that she is actually reading the man's part, and she reads the woman's secretary role instead. "I'm interested in real parts," Ruth says in a voiceover as she walks out.

Ruth's high standards have her down on her luck with only $83 in her bank account, so when her agent calls and says that there is an audition looking for "unconventional women," she has to go. There, she meets Sam, who explains that he's looking to hire actresses for the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. "Are you hiring actresses to play wrestlers or are we the wrestlers?" Ruth asks. "Yes," Sam responds.

Ruth lands the part and seems to take well to the new, tough landscape. However, it's not all smooth sailing for her, as she appears to have a pretty nasty history with Debbie, who definitely does not want Ruth encroaching on her turf. "She's the alpha and you're the omega," one of the other actresses tells Ruth. "Submit, she might kill you."

While the trailer features lots of '80s fun (including drugs in a robot), the series is clearly, at its base, about female empowerment, which is fitting with the creative team behind it. "This is the only place I get to do what I want to do," Ruth says. "This is about justice. This is about holding on to what's ours."

Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie) created the show and will serve as showrunners. GLOW steps into the ring on June 23; while we wait, see some important Netflix hacks you need to know.
