‘Glow’: Alison Brie Gets Slammed, Slapped and a ‘Crotch to Face’ in Behind-the-Scenes Video – Watch

20 June 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“There’s a lot of crotch to face.”

Community’s” Alison Brie makes this observation in a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of Netflix’s new series “Glow,” which looks to be the most fun, spandex-laden series ever, and that includes superhero shows.

The series is a fictional retelling of the rise of women’s wrestling in the 1980s. Brie stars as struggling actress Ruth Wilder, who gets her shot of stardom with Glow, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. She’s part of an elite, dirty dozen of misfits who are all looking to take their frustrations in life and channel them into take-charge personas in the ring.

“Every woman has a wresting character sleeping inside of them,” adds Betty Gilpin, who plays Ruth’s chief rival, a former soap star named Debbie who took a break from acting to have a baby.

A few of the other more colorful wrestler names include Cherry Bang (Sydelle Noel) and Sheila the She Wolf (Gayle Rankin). Leading the pack is Marc Maron as Sam Sylvia, the has-been B-movie director with the vision for Glow.

The behind-the-scenes video also show how the actresses trained for what we presume are their wrestling debuts, taking hits, getting clotheslined, learning to flip, fall and flop with grace, all while having an armpit or crotch in their face.

The series was co-created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, and executive produced by “Orange Is the New Black’s” Jenji Kohan. Take a look at the series below:

Glow” will release all 10 episodes of Season 1 on Friday, June 23.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in June, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Orange is the New Black” Season 5 (available June 9)

Why Should I Watch It? “Orange is the New Black” got dark last year. Not that Jenji Kohan’s award-winning Netflix original hasn’t always been open to heavy topics and painful arcs, but the end of Season 4 took things to the next level. Perhaps it was always planned. Perhaps it was their recent Emmys re-classification as a drama. Perhaps it was the mood of a nation. But it was memorable, haunting television. And we’re eager to see what comes next.

Best Episode: Our esteemed TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller chose the best episode of Season 5 after reviewing the entire season: Episode 5, “Sing It, White Effie,” features “focuses on Janae Watson (Vicky Jeudy) in the flashbacks, and features heartbreaking moments both in the past and the present.” That’s as much as we can say without spoiling things, so check IndieWire »

Destroy All Monsters: The Long Sad Tale of My Love for Pirates Of The Caribbean

31 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

It started abruptly in the summer of 2003. I had not seen Mouse Hunt, but I had seen The Mexican and The Ring. I sort of thought Gore Verbinski was a terrible director. I definitely thought making a movie out of a theme park ride was a terrible idea. I had not seen a good Johnny Depp movie in a decade or more. (No, I don't like Dead Man.) A week or two passed between the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (good lord, that title is horrifying to this day) and my getting around to seeing it. I wouldn't have bothered at all, except 90% of the people I know told me that not only did I have to,...
