Netflix Orders Wrestling Comedy Series ‘G.L.O.W.’ From ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Team

Ten-episode show is set in 1980s female wrestling league

Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of new comedy series “G.L.O.W.,” which “Orange Is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan will executive produce.

The show was co-created by Liz Flahive (“Homeland”) and Carly Mensch (“OINTB”), who will act as showrunners.

Inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league, the series — set in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams — will be the fictionalized story of an out-of-work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.

In addition to Kohan, “OITNB” EP Tara Herrmann will also serve as an executive producer.

Season 4 of “Orange Is the New Black” drops on Netflix on June 17.
