Netflix has renewed 'Glow' for a second series. The series is set in the real-life world of the 1980s female wrestling league (G.L.O.W. stands for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling).
Set in 1985 Los Angeles, the comedy/drama follows Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), a struggling out-of-work actress as she enters the world of female wrestling. The "Cinderella story with bodyslams" was created by Liz Flahive ('Homeland", 'Nurse Jackie') and Carly Mensch ('Nurse Jackie', 'Orange is the New Black', 'Weeds').
It's executive produced by the creators of 'Orange is the New Black', alongside Flahive and Mensch, who are also its showrunners.
In other Netflix news, the streaming service is entering discussions with Disney to stop it yanking all its content come 2019. The house of mouse recently announced it would end a deal with Netflix then, and launch its own Disney-branded streaming service.
However, Netflix doesn't want that to happen. CEO Reed Hastings has opened discussions, and hopes he can hang on to the 'Star Wars' and 'Marvel' licenses (which Disney owns). Only time will tell if he can succeed.
