Betty Gilpin Joins Netflix’s “GLOW” Series

Betty Gilpin (“Nurse Jackie”) is set to join Alison Brie in Netflix’s ten-episode 1980s wrestling comedy series “GLOW” which recently cast Alison Brie in the lead role.

Set in Los Angeles, the fictionalized story follows Ruth (Alison Brie) who is an out-of-work actress who finds one last chance to live her dreams in the form of a weekly syndicated TV series about female wrestlers.

Gilpin will portray Debbie Eagan, a former soap star who left show business to have a baby, only to be sucked back in when her picture-perfect life is not what it seems.

“Orange Is the New Black” producers Jenji Kohan and Carly Mensch along with “Homeland” alum Liz Flahive are behind the project.
