drama / Netflix
Big perms and body slams take over Netflix this week with a 10-part wrestling comedy inspired by the original 1980s professional wrestling show, aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. mad men’s Alison Brie plays struggling La-based actress Ruth Wilder, who auditions for a wrestling TV show helmed by washed-up director Sam Sylvia (comedian Marc Maron). But Ruth has her work cut out competing with a long line of fellow Hollywood rejects, especially when her friend Debbie steps in the ring… Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan is behind the show, and look out for British singer Kate Nash, too.
