Alison Brie Joins Netflix's Female Wrestling Series

Charles Sykes/BravoAlison Brie, formerly of NBC’s Community, is stepping into the ring as an unlikely female wrestler in Netflix’s upcoming comedy G.L.O.W., ABC News has confirmed.

Based on the 1980’s syndicated show G.L.O.W. — or Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — the 10-episode Neflix series was co-created by Homeland producer Liz Flahive, and Carly Mensch of Orange Is the New Black fame.

Brie, who also voices multiple characters on Netflix’s animated series Bojack Horseman, will reportedly play Ruth, an out-of-work actress who ends up taking a gig as a female pro wrestler in an attempt to keep her on-camera career alive.
