The makers of Orange Is the New Black have a new Netflix comedy about lady wrestling

Netflix have had quite a successful run with their original comedies.

On top of Orange Is The New Black (which, to be fair, is as much a comedy as it is a drama), there's also been Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Grace & Frankie, Love, Master Of None, W/Bob & Dave, Lady Dynamite, Girlboss, Dear White People and loads more besides.

While everyone is still in love with OITNB, we've all been very interested to see what the folks behind it would come up with next, and they have not disappointed.

GLOW (which stands for Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling), and focuses on a group of ladies - fronted by Community and Mad Men star Alison Brie - who find themselves in the 80s-tastic world of glitter, glory, and glam-rock inspired wrestling outfits.

Lady wrestling in the 80's does seem like a fantastic hot-bed for potential comedy, not least of which when one of the men tries to pigeon-hole all of the women into the "type" of wrestlers they should be, something that doesn't go down super well with the females present.
