Alison Brie to Star in Netflix Wrestling Comedy ‘GLOW’ From Jenji Kohan
The Netflix series marks the in-demand actress’ latest TV role since ‘Community’ and ‘BoJack Horseman.’
Alison Brie is hopping into Netflix’s wrestling ring.
The Community and BoJack Horseman favorite has booked the starring role in the streaming giant’s Jenji Kohan comedy GLOW, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
GLOW — aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — is inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league. The 10-episode comedy is set in Los Angeles and will showcase big hair and body slams and tell 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. The comedy is based on the professional women’s wrestling syndicated TV series that existed in the ’80s. The comedy was picked up to series in May.
Brie will star as Ruth, a struggling actress whose dreams of fame take a surprising turn when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.
GLOW was co-created by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange Is the New Black), who serve as showrunners on the series that also counts OITNB’s Kohan and Tara Herrmann as executive producers.
GLOW expands Brie’s relationship with Netflix, where she voices multiple characters on the critical-favorite animated comedy BoJack Horseman. The show marks her latest series-regular acting gig following NBC/Yahoo’s Community and comes after a pilot season that saw Brie turn down multiple offers — both comedy and drama — at seemingly every broadcast network. The busy actress, who counts Mad Men among her credits, also exec produces TV Land comedy series Teachers, which was renewed for a second season.
On the big screen, Brie was last seen in How to be Single, opposite Leslie Mann and Rebel Wilson. She will next appear in The Masterpiece, opposite James Franco, and The Headhunters Calling, the latter of which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brie is repped by WME, Rise Management and Sloane Offer.

BoJack struggles with how he’ll ultimately be remembered by his fans and what lasting impact he’s made on those closest to him. Also, there are lots of silly puns and talking animal jokes and celebrity cameos and all the other stuff that everybody loves about BoJack Horseman. It’s a very funny and good season of television. Don’t worry.”

Tompkins. “BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who serves as executive producer alongside Arnett, Paul, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright.
