Carly Mensch[1]Liz Flahive copyCreated by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange is the New Black), G.L.O.W. was inspired by the real story of the 1980’s female wrestling league. Set in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams, the series tells 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.

Flahive and Mensch will serve as showrunners and will executive produce with Kohan and Herrmann.

The Reagan-era female wrestling league G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling), a female answer to the male-dominated World Wrestling Federation, was showcased in the eponymous kitschy, Las Vegas-based syndicated TV series, which ran for four seasons, featuring sketches, songs and wrestling.
