GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) owner Ursula Hayden, also known as Babe The Farmer’s Daughter, announced on Facebook earlier this week that she signed a deal for a full new season of GLOW TV on Netflix. No other details were given but Diva-Dirt reports that Jenji Kohan, the creator of hit shows Orange Is The New Black and Weeds, is set to begin working on the series. It was also indicated that they are working on a pilot but the full season has not been confirmed yet.
GLOW will apparently tell the tale of a struggling actress in the 1980’s, who lands a role on a cult women’s wrestling show – GLOW. The Netflix series will focus on the actress struggling through the “many highs and lows of the (not so) glamorous world of wrestling.”
Kohan is executive producing while Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Weeds) and Liz Flahive (Nurse Jackie, Homeland) will be writing the pilot.
Kohan got the idea for the new series after watching a GLOW documentary available on Netflix.
