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.
