The GLOW official trailer is here! Alison stars as Ruth Wilder, and the Netflix series will be available to stream on June 23.
Guts, glitter, glory… Are you ready to GLOW?
Inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the 80s, GLOW tells the fictional story of Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), an out-of-work, struggling actress in 1980s Los Angeles who finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling. In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin), a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life turns out not to be what it seems. At the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling super stardom.
GLOW is executive produced by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie), Carly Mensch (Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie), Jenji Kohan (Orange is the New Black, Weeds) and Tara Herrmann (Orange is the New Black).
I’ve added some screen captures of Alison as Lucy in the 2016 film How to Be Single.

The Little Hours red band trailer has been released! The film is set to be in theaters on June 30. The Little Hours also stars Dave Franco, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, and more.
Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda, and Ginevra lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso brings on new hired hand Massetto, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry.
Congratulations to Alison and Dave! Reps confirmed to People that they are now married.
Dave Franco and Alison Brie have officially tied the knot.
Reps for the actors confirm exclusively to PEOPLE that the couple is now married.
Franco, 31, and Brie, 34, — who met at the 2011 Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans — announced their engagement in August 2015 after more than three years of dating.
PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that the actress’ one-of-a-kind engagement ring was the work of Southern California jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth. It’s a rose gold sparkler set with a rose-cut diamond and a diamond pave.
“I’m not very bridal, instinctually,” Brie, who next stars in Netflix’s GLOW out June 23rd, explained to Yahoo! Style last February. “Marriage never really interested me, I guess because I was very focused on my work. I wasn’t sure if I really saw the point to it. I bought a dress on Net-a-Porter, and I’m like, ‘Maybe I’ll wear that.’”
As for what changed her mind about marriage, she explained: “I just met that person that I was like, ‘Well, I’m really in love with you and would like to grow old with you.’ I actually think it’s much more romantic when two people are like, ‘Oh, I could go either way on marriage, but I want to marry you.’”
Exciting news for Community fans! Alison will guest star as herself on Ken Jeong’s show, Dr. Ken. Not exactly a Community reunion, however, it is always great having the cast reunite.
The Community reunion on the season finale of ABC’s Dr. Ken is growing.
Alison Brie is the latest Community alum set to guest star on the season finale, joining Dr. Ken star and former Community regular Ken Jeong and Community creator Dan Harmon.
In Dr. Ken’s Season 2 finale titled “Ken’s Big Audition,” Brie will guest star as herself, an actress just cast as a series regular on Harmon’s new sitcom. Alison reads with Ken (Jeong) during his audition, and is soon uncomfortable with Ken’s bold acting choices. As previously announced, Harmon plays himself, the creator of a new TV comedy set at a community college.
Brie joins a long list of Jeong’s Community co-stars that have appeared on Dr. Ken including Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs & Yvette Nicole Brown. Jonathan Banks’ is also appearing in this week’s episode airing on Friday.
The Dr. Ken season finale is slated to air Friday, March 31.
Brie is repped by WME & Rise Management.
Today, December 29th, Alison is celebrating her birthday. I’d like to wish a Happy Birthday to Alison! And to have a wonderful day!

Alison Brie to Star in Netflix Wrestling Comedy ‘GLOW’ From Jenji Kohan
The Netflix series marks the in-demand actress’ latest TV role since ‘Community’ and ‘BoJack Horseman.’
Alison Brie is hopping into Netflix’s wrestling ring.
The Community and BoJack Horseman favorite has booked the starring role in the streaming giant’s Jenji Kohan comedy GLOW, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
GLOW — aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — is inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league. The 10-episode comedy is set in Los Angeles and will showcase big hair and body slams and tell the fictionalized story of an out-of-work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers. The comedy is based on the professional women’s wrestling syndicated TV series that existed in the ’80s. The comedy was picked up to series in May.
Brie will star as Ruth, a struggling actress whose dreams of fame take a surprising turn when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.
GLOW was co-created by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange Is the New Black), who serve as showrunners on the series that also counts OITNB’s Kohan and Tara Herrmann as executive producers.
GLOW expands Brie’s relationship with Netflix, where she voices multiple characters on the critical-favorite animated comedy BoJack Horseman. The show marks her latest series-regular acting gig following NBC/Yahoo’s Community and comes after a pilot season that saw Brie turn down multiple offers — both comedy and drama — at seemingly every broadcast network. The busy actress, who counts Mad Men among her credits, also exec produces TV Land comedy series Teachers, which was renewed for a second season.
On the big screen, Brie was last seen in How to be Single, opposite Leslie Mann and Rebel Wilson. She will next appear in The Masterpiece, opposite James Franco, and The Headhunters Calling, the latter of which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brie is repped by WME, Rise Management and Sloane Offer.
