Netflix’s ‘Glow’ gets a Season 2 debut date & “maniacal” new trailer

Netflix has revealed, during the streaming service’s See What’s Next event in Rome, that the ladies of Glow are returning for a brand-new 10-episode second season on Friday June 29th. The new season will focus on the women adjusting to their new lives as professional wrestlers, and the trials and tribulations of putting together a fast-paced weekly TV show.

As Ruth (Alison Brie) and Debbie (Betty Gilpin) settle into the day-to-day of making a season of TV together, they confront lingering issues at the heart of their friendship. Sam (Marc Maron) is still Sam, but now he has a teenage daughter living with him and twenty episodes to churn out. The wrestling is harder, the stakes are higher and the hair is even bigger.

Both Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin are returning for the series two, with Annabella Sciorra (The Sopranos), Shakira Barrera (East Los High), and Wyatt Nash

‘Glow’ Season 2 Teaser: The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling Return, and They’re Maniacs — Watch

‘Glow’ Season 2 Teaser: The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling Return, and They’re Maniacs — Watch
While “Stranger Things” made audiences nostalgic for conventional 80s pop culture, its sister show “Glow” explored a lesser-known phenomena from that era: professional women’s wrestling promotions. Now back for a new season, it looks like the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are just getting started.

Loosely adapted from the 80s show of the same name, “Glow” tells the story of Ruth (Alison Brie), an aspiring actress thrown in the world of women’s wrestling. The first season explores the women’s new lives as professional wrestlers. Season 2, which premieres in June, looks like it’ll focus more on the struggles that come with making a television show out of them.

But in this first teaser, the ladies seem more than ready for the challenge. Getting ready in the locker room to Michael Sembello’s “Maniac,” they lip-sync and dance passionately into the camera in a definite homage to the “Flashdance” music video.

Why Should You Try Inclusion Riders? Because They Work — for Everyone (Opinion)

What could “inclusion riders” — or truly inclusive hiring — do for Hollywood? Maurício Mota, co-president of Wise Entertainment and an executive producer of Hulu’s “East Los High,” explains.

When Frances McDormand introduced the wider world to the phrase “inclusion rider” during the 2018 Oscars, it had an effect almost immediately. Weeks later, the production companies of Michael B. Jordan, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, and Paul Feig were among those jumping on board, saying they would adhere to the riders’ mandate to include certain percentages of employees from traditionally marginalized groups. Endeavor’s Ari Emanuel even wrote a memo supporting inclusion riders.

So what will all that do? Let me supply just one set of examples, drawn from several years’ worth of experience with our Hulu show, “East Los High.”

2018 Athena List Announced

The 2018 Athena Film Festival (Aff) is in full swing. Last night’s opening film, Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes,” was followed by a Q&A with Billie Jean King herself. The biopic sees Emma Stone playing King as she preps for her legendary 1973 tennis match against former Wimbledon champ and proud chauvinist Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). The dramedy offers a refreshing — and all-too-rare — look at a female leader. To help ensure that more of these kinds of stories are told, Aff highlights three to five screenplays about strong female protagonists that have yet to be made into films.

Launched in 2014, The Athena List attempts to remedy the dearth of female characters and misconceptions about female-led films. A committee of industry professionals chooses which titles will be recognized. Among this year’s judges were “The Good Lie” screenwriter Margaret Nagle, “East Los High” producer Maurício Mota,

American Horror Story: Cult” (FX, 10 p.m.). From our review:

It’s not hard to see how Ryan Murphy arrived at his premise for “Ahs” Season 7. To say that many Americans have been living out their own personal horror story isn’t an overstatement — not with border closings, hate speech, and potential treason all enabled by the White House — but the new season manages to undermine the left’s legitimate fears and amplify the right’s monstrous traits all in one frenzied mess of an allegory.
