A fictionalised account of the female wrestling shows that popped up on 80s television, GLOW, written by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch and produced by the all-female team behind Orange Is The New Black, centres on out-of-work actress Ruth (Alison Brie) and her best friend Debbie (Nurse Jackie’s Betty Gilpin), who end up cast in the same show and sloughing it out in the ring (while bedecked in metallic leotards and some serious 80s eye makeup).
