GLOW was created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, who executive produce the series and serve as show-runners.

"Set in 1985 Los Angeles, GLOW follows Ruth Wilder, a struggling out-of-work actress as she auditions for, trains and eventually makes the first-ever women's wrestling TV show," a synopsis said. "Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the '80s, GLOW is a Cinderella story with body slams."
